Text of measure

At the present time, Article XI, Section 2 of the South Dakota Constitution permits the Legislature to enact an income tax. This amendment would prohibit enactment of an income tax by the Legislature unless the revenue generated is dedicated to fund elementary and secondary education and to provide a replacement for taxes on real property. In addition, no personal or corporate income tax adopted by the Legislature would become effective until it was approved by a majority of those voting on the issue at a general or special statewide election.[1]
