Gov. Noem makes another pitch for grocery tax repeal  (Audio)

March 1, 2023

PIERRE, S.D.–Governor Kristi Noem has released a video again asking South Dakota legislators to support permanently cutting the state’s 4.5% sales tax on groceries.

Noem says the grocery sales tax cut is the fairest tax cut for all people. She says a recent poll found that 58% of those surveyed prefer the grocery sales tax repeal to other options.

Here’s what she told South Dakotans in a you tube video her office released on Tuesday…

Last week, the House of Representatives opted to instead reduce the overall sales tax rate from 4.5% to 4.2%– or 30 cents for every $100 spent. This week, the Senate Tax Committee put a two-year sunset on that tax cut.
