Getting ready to file your tax return? We know taxes aren’t everyone’s idea of fun, but if you’re expecting to receive a tax refund this year, you’ll want to keep reading.


Your local Brookings car dealer came up with five ways for you to get more money back. Plus, we’re giving you a chance to save even more money when you purchase a used vehicle from Einspahr by covering the 4% South Dakota Sales Tax* during our Tax Break Sale!


Five Ways to Take Advantage of Your Tax Return in South Dakota


1. File Early

Accountants get super swamped around tax season, so start collecting documents as soon as you can. In light of the government shutdown this year, the earlier you file, the better. 


2. Get the Biggest Tax Return You Can

There are several ways to get more money out of your return, such as:


  • Contributing to your retirement
  • Taking eligible above-the-line deductions
  • Itemizing your deductions (rather than taking the standard deduction)
  • Claiming any friends or relatives you’ve been supporting


3. Predict How Much Money You'll Get

It's better for planning and budgeting purposes if you can estimate how much money you'll receive as a refund. Use a free tool like this one to estimate your tax refund for free.


4. Check the Status of Your Return Online

If you filed electronically, you can see your status within 24 hours of filing; if you filed via snail mail, you’ll need to wait four weeks.


5. Don’t Miss the Deadline!

If you can’t file early, at least file on time. Monday, April 15 is the important day to remember.
