(SB 83)

Eligibility qualifications for an assessment freeze
for single-family dwelling revised.


         ENTITLED, An Act to  revise the eligibility qualifications for an assessment freeze of single- family dwellings.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA:

     Section  1.  That § 10-6A-3 be amended to read as follows:

     10-6A-3.   This chapter does not apply to a single-family dwelling with a full and true market value of one hundred fifty thousand dollars or more unless the applicant has received the freeze on assessments in a preceding year on the single-family dwelling. Beginning on January 1, 2008, the eligibility qualification value of the single-family dwelling provided in this section shall be annually increased by an index factor. The index factor is the annual percentage change in the consumer price index for urban wage earners and clerical workers as computed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States Department of Labor for the year before the year immediately preceding the year of adjustment or the annual percentage change in federal social security payments for the preceding year, whichever is greater.
