PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- A sales tax cut bill took another turn through the South Dakota Senate Appropriations Committee Wednesday.
Senator Ryan Maher of Isabel helped explain an amendment.
The bill would drop the general state sales tax from four and a half percent to four point two percent and was set to end in 2025.
Representative Chris Karr of Sioux Falls is the prime sponsor of the tax cut.
The changes are tied to the “Partridge Amendment” that was passed in 2015 that was supposed to rachet down the sales tax rate as online taxes grew.
Karr says those sales have jumped considerably.
The bill was passed on a seven to one vote and now heads back to the House.
