South Dakota provides a tax report credit for gasoline blended with ethyl or methyl alcohol to create an ethanol blend, E85 or M85 to the licensed blender who performs the blending activity. The tax report credit shall be granted on a per gallon basis in the amount that the rate for motor fuel exceeds the rate for ethanol blend E85 or M85. The credit shall be used to off-set any tax liability resulting from the blending of previously untaxed ethyl or methyl alcohol.
