A South Dakota mail forwarding service abruptly closed last week and began returning mail to senders before announcing to its customers it was doing so. The company, MyDakotaAddress.com, is owned and operated by Jon Knuths and managed by Terri Lund. We called Ms. Lund, who confirmed the closure.
Many full-time RVers opt for a South Dakota address because of significant tax advantages of establishing a domicile there.
Customers received an email notifying them of the closure, but only after the company was already returning their postal mail, leaving many scrambling on their own to get their mail, medications, passports, tickets, and other important information.
Americas Mailbox, an RVtravel.com supporter, was so busy taking orders from My Dakota Address the past few days that owners Don and Barb Humes were working until midnight to keep up with the influx of new customers. A message on its website says that its staff will work this weekend to help.
If your email address is with My Dakota Address, we urge you to contact Americas Mailbox, which will answer your questions and advise of possible action to reestablish service. The company has established a special page for MyDakotaAddress customers . Or call (605) 718-1234 during business hours.
