Deadline for Disaster Unemployment Assistance

RAPID CITY, S.D. –South Dakota workers, including ag producers, have less than two weeks left to apply for Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) benefits. The deadline to apply for DUA is Wednesday, Dec. 18.

South Dakota workers who lost their jobs or whose income was affected by the severe winter storm, snow storm and flooding that occurred Oct. 3-16 can file a claim by calling the Unemployment Insurance Call Center at 605-626-3179. DUA is available to those whose employment or income have been affected by the disaster but are not eligible for state unemployment benefits, including ranchers, farmers and the self-employed.

“Bottom line, if you are self-employed and lost income due to the October blizzard, I would encourage you to call 605-626-3179 to find out if you may be eligible for disaster unemployment benefits,” said Federal Coordinating Officer, Gary Stanley.

DUA is available for individuals who live or work in Butte, Corson, Custer, Dewey, Fall River, Haakon, Harding, Jackson, Lawrence, Meade, Pennington, Perkins, Shannon and Ziebach counties as well as the Cheyenne River Reservation and the Pine Ridge Reservation.

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate all hazards.

Delinquent Real Estates Tax Certificate Sale

Real property situated in Fall River and Shannon Counties upon which taxes for the year 2012 remain due and unpaid will be offered for sale to the public on Monday, December 16, 2013 at the office of the County Treasurer at the Fall River County Courthouse in Hot Springs. The sale will take place between 9:00am and 4:00pm and will continue from day to day until all properties have been offered for sale. Properties will be sold for the amount of the delinquent taxes charged against said property and the accruing cost of sale.  Any remaining unpaid special assessments for the year 2012 will be added penalty, interest and cost of advertising and the accruing cost of sale.

For those unfamiliar with this process:

The purchase of a tax certificate does not constitute purchase of the land. Purchasing the tax certificate is equivalent to paying the taxes and fees on a property, if you then pay the taxes on that property for the required number of years (3 years in town, 4 years for rural) you may then take legal action to acquire the land. If during that time the current landowner wishes to buy back the tax certificate they may due so by paying back the purchase price of the certificate plus interest.
