The focus of our department is to serve South Dakotans and to support government services by collecting all taxes required by law, supporting motor vehicle requirements, and regulating the gaming industry and state’s lottery to raise revenue for government programs. This is accomplished by providing taxpayers with current and complete information, education programs, and up-to-date technology to support tax filings, payments and motor vehicle registration. Our efforts have yielded high voluntary compliance rates in all areas and have promoted commitment, communication, and customer service.
We recognize our responsibilities to the taxpayers, and service is a priority. We are pleased to offer our professional services through the Internet and will continue to make progress while always promoting efficiency.
Our actions will comply with the statutory provisions of the State of South Dakota, and our duties under those statutes will be carried out in a fiscally responsible manner. Thank you for this opportunity to serve you.
