Daugaard submits online sales tax bills

Gov. Dennis Daugaard submitted two bills for consideration during the upcoming special legislative session that would help implement a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing states to force online shoppers to pay sales tax. One special session measure would allow the state to start collecting sales taxes from many out-of-state internet retailers on Nov. 1.  A second bill would require marketplaces such as eBay to collect sales taxes for sellers on their platforms if the marketplace handles payments. Lawmakers are also set to debate an unrelated third bill on the timing of the new governor’s inauguration in January. The state’s last special legislative session was held in 2017 to create rules governing the use of lakes on private land for recreation.
