District 8 Senator Crabtree discusses tax cuts

The South Dakota Senate will be the scene of this week’s tax cut debate. Governor Kristi Noem had proposed cutting the four-and-a-half percent sales tax on groceries completely.

That plan was killed in the House Appropriations Committee last week.

Senate Majority Leader Casey Crabtree of Madison said the food tax cut won’t be back in the Senate.

Crabtree said the debate will come down to the point-three-percent cut passed by the House, or a property tax cut that was killed in committee.

Crabtree said taxes will be going down in either case.

The point-three-percent sales tax cut passed by the House would reduce state revenues by just over one-hundred million dollars.
