The State Sales Tax Cut Let South Dakota Families Down

Many of us preferred the proposal to take state tax off groceries. With it, even groceries averaging $250 a month would realize a bigger tax cut than $127 a month. Many families, especially those with children, have much higher food costs. For a family of four eating at home, the United States Department of Agriculture’s “Thrifty Food Plan” costs $979 and month as of February. That food, the cheapest of the USDA plans, will get an annual sales tax cut of only $35 next year. If the Legislature had instead passed the food tax cut, they would save us each an average of $528.
