In some states, 2021 was a big year for state tax reform. Here in South Dakota, Governor Kristi Noem stated in her State of the State Address proposed to legislators some changes of her own.

“South Dakota is already among the most business-friendly states in America. With this action, we will make it even easier to do business here,” said Governor Kristi Noem. “We also guarantee the right of our people to keep and bear arms. It will not cost you a penny to exercise your Second Amendment rights in South Dakota.”

Noem asked for a half percentage point cut in the state sales tax from 4.5% to 4% over the next two years. In February state lawmakers rejected the proposal.
