Re: thanks SD
we pay sales on every thing from food, clothing, farm auction, ag parts, labor repair work ,
autioned or used farm equipment carrys a 4% sales tax
food can carry as much as 8 % sales depend what local tax rates . this hits our low wage earners who can least afford it .
Its the wealthy who gain with our regressive tax system. like our govt welfare farmers.
I guess you think its great after all our state budgets where over 40% is supported thru federal govt aid, you as a govt farmer knows well how that works. With your crops under a foot of water as you stated what percentage of your income will come from taxpayers?
The continued federal aid makes SD a welfare state
