On January 1, 2018 the 1% sales and use tax will be implemented to pay for the renovation of the City's swimming pool. Once enough funds have been collected to pay for the project the local sales and use tax will no longer be collected. The City is estimating the project will be paid for in approximately 5 years.
More information about the local tax can be found on the Minnesota Department of Revenue's website at http://www.revenue.state.mn.us/businesses/sut/Pages/General-Notices.aspx
. Specific questions regarding the local sales and use tax should be directed to the Minnesota Department of Revenue. The State is administering and collecting the local sales and use tax on behalf of the City.
At this point and time all businesses should have received a notice from the Department of Revenue about the upcoming local sales and use tax. The notices were sent out at the end of October.
