Revised Energy Property Tax Assessment
South Dakota has passed legislation defining a revised property tax assessment method for commercial wind energy facilities. Originally this method applied to all commercial wind energy facilities regardless of their size but now commercial wind facilities larger than 5 MW are exempted from all property taxes in favor of an alternative taxing structure. Thus the special property tax assessment listed here is now only applicable to commercial wind facilities with an aggregate capacity of less than 5 MW. The two special rules that now apply to such facilities are as follows: the property value assessment does not include the wind turbine or blades (these are considered personal property) and the assessed property value only takes the base, foundation, tower, and substations into account; wind energy companies are not subject to discretionary property tax formulas. All commercial wind facilities covered under this law, regardless of ownership, are assessed at the local level.
