Wednesday night on Your Money Matters, KELOLAND's Angela Kennecke looked into a couple of transient dent repair companies that had set up shop in Sioux Falls and discovered they had not registered with the South Dakota Department of Revenue for a sales tax license, nor posted a bond as required by transient companies in the state.
On Thursday, the South Dakota Attorney General's Office of Consumer Protection is issued a warning about companies that come into the state looking for business.
The Attorney General says consumers should ask to see an out-of-state's current South Dakota tax license. State law requires anyone selling products or services to have a current South Dakota sales or contractors' excise tax license. But the AG's office says even if they have this license it does not mean that you will be able to locate them once the work is complete.
