When You Support Local Small Businesses, You Invest in Sioux Falls!
When you support local small business - You invest in Sioux Falls
Small Businesses are the lifeblood of your community, by keeping as much of your income spent on Food, Clothing, Housing, let alone all of the things you love to buy, all of the activities you like to partake in, those dollars get invested back into the community itself in the form of economic, community, and land development.
Locally owned businesses, all those mom and pop small businesses reinvest their profits right here in Sioux Falls, and by doing so, that maintains a steady stream of income used to create new buildings, inventory, new products and services, let alone, the infrastructure necessary to provide all that activity, let alone creates new jobs, higher wages.
Here’s what happens when you “shop local"
- More money will be kept in your local community
- You embrace what makes your community unique
- You create local jobs
- You help the environment
For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community. What happens when you spend that same $100 at a national chain? Only $43 stays in the community.*
You wouldn’t want your house to look like everyone else’s in the U.S. So why would you want your community to look that way?
Local businesses are better at creating higher-paying jobs for your neighbors. When you shop locally, you help create jobs for teachers, firemen, police officers, and many other essential professions.
Buying from a locally owned business conserves energy and resources in the form of less fuel for transportation and less packaging.
In South Dakota, the trademark policy has been to provide for, and to manage the "State" without implying a state income tax, let alone, allowing the citizens to keep 100% of their income free from taxation in regards to their paychecks. This allows for all citizens to equally maintain the transparent, and full control of their incomes, except for where they elect to allow the Federal Government to take from them by virtue of the Federal Withholding Tax laws.
The more income that we can keep inside the borders of South Dakota, meaning, the more we invest back in to ourselves, our business community, our overall community, the more capital we have for things like higher wages, new jobs, new roads, buildings, homes, all the things we depend on in order to go about our daily lives.
Whether you shop online among those internet retailers, or you travel outside your state to places like the Mall of America in Minneapolis, or to other states of the union, remember that for all those dollars spent on goods and services in those foreign states, you're removing capital from our own local communities.
Just as we complain about how we have shipped jobs and services to the likes of China, in order to utilize cheaper labor, while placing regulations and tariffs on those products, the same is true as you exchange goods and services outside the borders of South Dakota, let alone your local community - Sioux Falls.
Knowing, that you owe the S.D Sales Tax on anything you buy whether in-state or out-of-state, we should rather pay that sales tax directed to South Dakota at 4.5%, and Sioux Falls at 2.0% of which those tax dollars provide you all of your public roads, buildings, parks, infrastructure, places, of which allow you to do all the things you wish to do, rather than shopping online, or in Minnesota or Iowa, thus punishing our fellow citizens by doing business with foreign persons, companies outside our state borders. Rather, by supporting those local retailers in our own backyard we will continue to have full time jobs, good wages, and invest back into ourselves first and foremost.
You should want to avoid paying those taxes to other states, let alone, avoid as much federal taxes as much as necessary, and by spending those dollars locally by doing business with your neighbors, the taxes we do pay for, go directly to the State of South Dakota, let alone the City of Sioux Falls, and to the Sioux Falls School District.
Sioux Falls Community Chronicle and all of its members, must stand together, support each other, and all of our local retailers, cause at the end of day, they support you, your children, your churches, all your charities, and all the benefits you come to expect as an American Citizen of the State of South Dakota.
Did you know, that the "Sales Tax" you pay on every good or service you buy, that you being a member of the sovereign group of people, the Citizens of South Dakota, do not lawfully, nor legally owe any such tax to any foreign state, thus you have the constitutional protected right to exempt yourself from a Minnesota or Iowa Sales Tax, in return, you should want to report that "transaction" to the State of South Dakota, by filling out a tax return each month, to submit, and pay a "Use Tax" at the same rate of 6.5%, of which 4.5% goes for Statewide Roads, Programs, Infrastructure, whereas 2.0% goes to Sioux Falls for all your local Roads, Utilities, Infrastructure, Parks, Police, Fire, and Rescue Services, all the things you depend on as part of being a part of your community.
That is why, Mike Zitterich named this group page "Sioux Falls Community Chronicle", for the very definition of the name is as such:
"Community defines a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common, of which they enjoy a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. Chronicle is defined as a chronological record of events; a history of the people, and their community with a goal to record in or as in a chronicle.."
