Minnesota Sales Tax Increase, April 2016
- Dec 23, 2015 | Gail Cole
The sales tax rate in Crow Wing County, Minnesota, will increase next year. Effective April 1, 2016, the rate throughout the county will jump by a half-cent, raising revenue for bridge and road improvements. It is expected to generate $4.18 million per year.
A couple of years ago, the county would have had to obtain approval from voters to increase the sales tax rate. But in 2013, the state passed a law “allowing local governments to collect sales taxes to fund transportation needs without a voter referendum” (Brainerd Dispatch).
The additional tax is scheduled to sunset on December 31, 2025. More information is available on the County Board of Commissioners website, under the meeting minutes for 12/15/2015.
