Minnesota Sales Tax on Aggregate Materials

  • Sep 12, 2012 | Will Frei

The Minnesota Department of Revenue updated its guidelines on how sales and use tax applies to aggregate materials and concrete block. 

How Tax Applies

  • Delivery of aggregate materials and concrete block by a seller or third party deliverer is a taxable service.
  • This excludes delivery of aggregate used in road construction.


But wait, there's more!

Minnesota law defines aggregate material as "nonmetalic natural mineral aggregate including, but not limited to, sand, silica sand, gravel, crushed rock, limestone, granite, and borrow, but only if the borrow is transported on a public road, street, or highway."

The updated guidelines include the following definition of gravel: ". . . crushed rock, sand or pebbles."

Sales tax rates, rules, and regulations change frequently. Although we hope you'll find this information helpful, this blog is for informational purposes only and does not provide legal or tax advice.
