Property tax exemption deadline approaching

Nov. 1 is the deadline for non-profit industrial development corporations to file with county directors of equalization for a property tax exemption for real property for property tax year 2016, paid in 2017.

The South Dakota Legislature increased the exemption from $100,000 to $750,000 in 2016. Click here to read the statute.

The forms to file for this exemption are available at The South Dakota Department of Revenue’s property tax forms page.

If your organization has previously filed for this exemption, you need to complete form PT-44 Application for Continuing Tax Exempt Status of a Private Organization. If you have not previously filed for this exemption, complete form PT-43 Application for Property Tax Exempt Status.

The GOED recommends taking the completed form to the Director of Equalization to get a time-stamped copy to verify timely filing.

For more information, please contact Joe Fiala, Research and Community Development Director, at joe.fiala@sdreadytowork.com or 605-204-0915.
