The S.D. Department of Revenue (DOR) has compiled information that can and should be used to help explain the property tax system in South Dakota to inquiring taxpayers.
There are 4 separate documents that can help with the explanation and to access these documents click on the blue link:
- DOR Property Tax 101: Our tax fact document is available for those individuals wanting to take a deeper dive into how the property tax system works.
- DOR Understanding Your Property Tax: This handout is an easy-to-read overview of property taxes, providing some fundamental concepts while answering common taxpayer questions.
- DOR Property Tax Talking Points: This document should be used internally as a quick reference for talking points, especially for anyone not fully versed in the property tax system. It can also be handed out, if needed, as a quick outline of the high points between assessment and taxation;
- DOR Property Tax Math Example: We have developed a math visual that shows the relationship between valuation and tax rate to better explain that an increase in value does not mean a direct increase in taxes.
DOR encourages offices to make copies of any or all of these documents and provide them to property owners to help them understand the system.
