SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Officials say Uber has failed to provide necessary paperwork to begin ride-hailing services in South Dakota’s largest city.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/29k6gvo ) that subsidiary of the transportation network company submitted an application to the Sioux Falls licensing office last month, along with a $1,500 annual license fee.

But city licensing specialist Jamie Palmer says a license has not been granted because Uber must provide proof of a sales tax license. The requirement is one of the stipulations included in the city’s revamped driver-for-hire rules that took effect last fall.

Uber spokeswoman Carla Jacobs wouldn’t say if the company plans to obtain a sales tax license. But she says the company is “continuing to work with the city” on its application.
