Tax applies on sales made in the course of a regularly conducted retail business.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Unless sales are of such a number, volume, or frequency as to indicate evasion of the tax, they are not taxable. A jobber or wholesaler who sells direct to a consumer is a retailer for that portion of the jobber's or wholesaler's business.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Each case must stand upon its own facts, but good faith is required. Taxability is the rule rather than the exception, and the rule of reason applies.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Source:</b> SL 1975, ch 16, &nbsp;1; 13 SDR 129, 13 SDR 134, effective July 1, 1987; 16 SDR 76, effective November 1, 1989; 21 SDR 219, effective July 1, 1995.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>General Authority:</b>SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=10-45-47.1">10-45-47.1.</A></p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Law Implemented:</b>SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=10-45-2">10-45-2.</A></p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Examples:</b></p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; (1)&nbsp;&nbsp;A and her family are moving so she decides to sell some household items before leaving.
