Rules and Regulations for the State of South Dakota

Sales Tax Law:

Statute 10-45-110 of the South Dakota Codified Laws, there is an “exemption for sales of coins,
currency, or bullion.”

Bullion is defined as “any bar, ingot, or commemorative medallion of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, or a combination of these metals where the value of the metal depends on its content and not the form.”
Coins and currency are defined as “any coins or currency made of gold, silver, or other metal or paper which is or has been used as legal tender.”

NPMEX is required to collect tax on some items shipping to South Dakota, however sales tax will not be charged for Gold, Silver, Platinum, or Palladium bullion items as they are exempt from sales tax when shipping to a South Dakota address.

The State of South Dakota requires the collection of taxes on certain products sold by NPMEX and delivered to a South Dakota address. These taxes must be collected on (1) copper products; (2) certain numismatic coins; (3) accessory items; and (4) processed items. All other products sold by NPMEX are exempt from these taxes.

The following definitions apply to products on which taxes must be collected in South Dakota:

  • Numismatic Coins: Coins with an external value above and beyond the base value of the underlying Precious Metal, due to the item’s rarity, condition, age or other external factor.
  • Accessory Items: Items such as holders, tubes or coin flips.
  • Processed Items: Precious Metals that have been processed by third parties into items valued on more than their Precious Metal content, such as jewelry, statues or colorized coins.

Sales taxes in South Dakota are calculated at checkout on the NPMEX website based on
(1) the taxability of products sold by NPMEX in South Dakota set forth above, and
(2) the specific tax rates established by the taxing jurisdiction of the delivery address in South Dakota.

Capital Gains Tax:
