License Review

A license review is an education meeting between a Revenue Agent and a taxpayer. The purpose of the meeting is to provide education on South Dakota tax laws.

What happens during a license review?

Typically, the Revenue Agent will schedule the review at the taxpayer’s place of business. The agent will discuss tax issues with the taxpayer and review a limited number of records to determine if there are any problem areas. If problems are discovered, the taxpayer may be asked to complete self-audit worksheets to correct the problems.

What are the benefits of a license review?

  • A review is less time-consuming than going through a full audit. A limited amount of time is spent in analyzing records.
  • Taxpayers receive one-on-one education at the taxpayer’s place of business.
  • Taxpayers have the opportunity to correct problems without having to go through the audit process.

To schedule a license review:

Contact your local Revenue office and ask to speak with the Revenue Agent responsible for your area. Field offices are located in Aberdeen, Mitchell, Pierre, Rapid City, Sioux Falls, Watertown, and Yankton. If you are unsure of which office to contact, call the 1-800-829-91881-800-829-9188 toll-free number, or e-mail, and we will direct you to the nearest field office.
