SOUTH DAKOTA GOVERNOR KRISTI NOEM IS PROPOSING TO ELIMINATE THE STATE SALES TAX ON GROCERIES AS PART OF HER REELECTION CAMPAIGN.

NOEM SAYS INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES ARE STRUGGLING AND SHE BLAMES THE CURRENT HIGH COST OF FOOD AND ECONOMIC CONDITIONS ON THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION:

NOEMTAX1 OC…..IN THE WHITE HOUSE :19

NOEM, WHO MAY BE INTERESTED IN RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN 2024, SAYS CUTTING THE SALES TAX ON GROCERIES IS ONE WAY TO HELP PROTECT OUR PEOPLE FROM A DISASTROUS WHITE HOUSE:

NOEMTAX2 OC……..25 PERCENT. :26

IF LEGISLATION ELIMINATING THE SALES TAX ON GROCERIES IS PASSED BY THE STATE LEGISLATURE, NOEM SAYS IT WOULD BE THE LARGEST TAX CUT IN SOUTH DAKOTA HISTORY:

NOEMTAX3 OC………GET IT DONE :10

NOEM SAYS ELIMINATION OF THE GROCERY SALES TAX WOULD REDUCE THE TAX BURDEN ON SOUTH DAKOTANS BY $100 MILLION DOLLARS.

SHE DID NOT LAY OUT ANY PLANS FOR HOW THE STATE MAY RECOUP THE MONEY OR HOW MANY JOBS AND WHAT SERVICES WOULD HAVE TO BE CUT BECAUSE OF THE REDUCTION IN SALES TAX REVENUE.

SOUTH DAKOTA’S BUDGET SURPLUS FOR THE 2022 FISCAL YEAR WAS $115.5 MILLION.

SALES TAXES GREW BY 12%. THE STATE’S RAINY-DAY FUND GREW TO $422.6 MILLION, 20.5% OF THE STATE BUDGET.
