The Property Tax Division is responsible for overseeing South Dakota's property tax system, including property tax assessments and all property tax laws. Property taxes are the primary source of funding for schools, counties, municipalities, and other units of local government. While property tax administration in South Dakota is primarily the responsibility of local government, the Property Tax Division plays a critical role in ensuring that property assessments are fair, equitable, and in compliance with state law.
