SD – Self storage in the last 3 years? Get Your Refund!

Posted by salestax on August 19, 2009

Some time ago, two very brave business owners subjected themselves to sales tax statute scrutinization of their mini/self-storage business.  These brave souls won their case almost a year ago and it now stands that basic Mini/Self storage services are not taxable in SD anymore.  Further, SD is allowing any customers who had been charged tax on these services to go back to the storage business and request a sales tax refund (See my previous report). 

Well, the time is drawing near and those taxes paid will no longer be elibible for refund after 9/15/09 if a customer does not request it. 

For more information and back ground, see the Business Tax Division page on the SD Revenue and Regulation website here.

Also, for a synopsis on what storage services are exempt vs. taxable in SD, see here.
