Governor signs sales tax bills

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed into law a measure allowing South Dakota to collect sales taxes from many out-of-state online retailers starting Nov. 1.
The Republican governor on Wednesday also signed a law to require marketplaces that handle payments, such as eBay, to collect sales taxes for sellers on their platforms.
Lawmakers easily passed the bills earlier that day as part of a special legislative session. Daugaard had urged support for the measures in a speech to lawmakers.
The special session came after a June U.S. Supreme Court ruling in South Dakota’s favor that opened the door for consumers to see sales tax on more online purchases from out-of-state companies.
The governor also signed into law an unrelated third bill on the timing of the new governor’s inauguration in January.
