Indirect Tax, ONESOURCE, Sales and Use Tax December 6, 2011

 The Secretary of State has certified that a grassroots movement, Moving South Dakota Forward, has gathered more than the 16,000 required signatures to get a 1 percent state sales tax increase on the November 2012 ballot.  Although previous polling didn’t promise much support, voters will get a chance to make their choice on Measure 15 next year.  Revenues are expected to help out K-12 education and the states troubled Medicaid fund.
