Minnesota Updates Tax Delinquency List

  • Apr 21, 2015 | Gail Cole

 Automate. Be compliant. and stay off the list.

To encourage tax compliance among businesses that purchase beer, wine and liquor for resale, the Minnesota Department of Revenue posts on its website a list of businesses that have failed to pay certain taxes to the state. Applicable taxes include sales tax and withholding taxes, which retailers collect from customers with the understanding that they will remit them to the state. That list has recently been updated.

The list is not simply designed to shame tax scofflaws. Under Minnesota law, distributors are prohibited from selling or making deliveries to any business on the list. Only after a business has paid in full any outstanding taxes will the department remove it from the list. At that time, the business may resume normal business activity.

The department also publishes a list of businesses that have had their sales and use tax permits revoked for nonpayment and/or non-filing issues related to Minnesota sales tax. Businesses with revoked permits are not permitted to make any retail sales of goods or services.  View the lists.
