Teri Schmidt of the Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau isn't surprised CNBC announced that South Dakota has climbed to the top of America's states for business for 2013.

In Teri's words:  "The fact that we have no corporate income tax, no personal income tax, no personal property tax, no business inventory tax, no inheritance tax---are great factors in attracting businesses.  Wow!  South Dakota is a great place to do business.

Teri says South Dakota's business climate is a reflection of Sioux Falls!  "We have a progressive business climate---this is another reason to bring your businesses to the city.  Plus the people and the quality of life---Sioux Falls has it all."
