Two South Dakota towns raising taxes in 2018

PIERRE, SD (KSFY) - Two South Dakota communities will update their current municipal sales and use tax rates beginning Jan. 1.

Currently, Bruce and McLaughlin have a one percent general sales and use tax rate. Both towns are raising that to two percent.

South Dakota municipalities are able to implement new tax rates or change existing tax rates January 1 or July 1 each year.

The South Dakota Department of Revenue has municipal tax information bulletins available, which list all municipal sales and use tax rates statewide, along with information on tribal sales, use and excise taxes.

Updated bulletins are free of charge and available Jan. 1.
