South Dakota business regulations workshop to be hosted by SD CEO at BHSU

South Dakota Center for Enterprise Opportunity at Black Hills State University will host a daylong South Dakota Business Regulations workshop to benefit local business owners and entrepreneurs on March 29 at BHSU-Rapid City from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Starting the day is Paula K'nigge, Revenue Agent from South Dakota Department of Revenue, who will present a two-hour 'Sales and Use Tax' session starting at 8:00 a.m. According to the SD Department of Revenue, knowing what taxes apply to your business and how and when to file returns can be very confusing. Attending this class will give you an opportunity to receive important information, find helpful resources, and ask questions to help lessen the confusion and make paying taxes less stressful.

Following at 10:00 a.m. is 'Labor and Employment Laws' presented by James Marsh, Director of Labor and Management from the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation. Director Marsh will walk through the basics of South Dakota's workers' compensation, minimum wage, child labor, and general employment laws. Followed by time for questions and resources you may use to address your employment issues.

In the afternoon South Dakota's Secretary of State, Shantel Krebs, will present on 'Filing Requirements' from 1:00-3:00 p.m. This workshop will teach participants what information needs to be filed with the state, what business information is considered public record, and what resources are available to the public for guidance. "This workshop will give new, established or aspiring business owners information to navigate the filing process and requirements for the state of South Dakota," says Helen Merriman, SDCEO Director. "Attending this workshop will give you an opportunity to receive information, find helpful resources and ask questions."

Registration for each session is $25 or register for all three workshops for $65 online at or by calling us at 605-642-6435. Lunch will be on your own.
