  • Can any personal information I provide be used against me?Back to top

    There's no guarantee you won't be prosecuted if you pay taxes on marijuana or controlled substances.  However, information in Minnesota Department of Revenue tax reports or returns can't be used against you in a criminal court proceeding unless someone else obtains the information independently. The information CAN be used in a criminal court proceeding if it involves taxes you owe under the statute.
