What if I'm not charged sales tax on my purchase?

If you are not charged sales tax on your purchases, use tax is due. You can calculate the amount owed and pay online by using our online use tax payment feature.

Some businesses may not be required to collect South Dakota sales tax if they do not meet the minimum sales or transaction thresholds.

*As of November 1, 2018, South Dakota law also requires any business without a physical presence in South Dakota to obtain a South Dakota sales tax license and pay applicable sales tax if the business meets one or both of the following criteria in the previous or current calendar year:

  1. The business has gross sales into South Dakota exceeding $100,000; or
  2. The business has 200 or more separate transactions into South Dakota.

Gross sales or transactions include the sale of tangible personal property, any products transferred electronically, or services.

Note: These minimum thresholds do not apply to any business with a physical presence in South Dakota.


If you suspect that a remote seller is currently not licensed and should be, you can anonymously report tax fraud to the South Dakota Department of Revenue. Click here to get started.
