  • I have been sending in voluntary payments, why did you levy me?Back to top

    You received a demand to pay letter which explained that you needed to make formal payment arrangements to prevent the department from taking collection action. Failure to set up a formal payment agreement resulted in the levy.​

  • How can I be removed from Liquor Posting?Back to top

    To be removed from the Liquor Posting List, the Minnesota Department of Revenue requires payment in full using secured funds. Once the payment has been received, the department has two days to remove the business from the list.

  • Can I wait and let my refund pay my debt?Back to top

    Your refund will be applied to your debt, but until that occurs penalties and interest will accrue. In addition, you risk enforced collection action for not making payment arrangements with the department.​

  • How soon after I make a payment can I register for classes, obtain a transcript, or renew a license?Back to top

    In order to register for classes or obtain transcripts, the debt(s) that remain unpaid will need to be paid in full, including the assessed collection costs. Schools require that payments are made using secured funds.

    In order to have a suspended license reinstated, the citation(s) that caused the suspension need to be paid in full, including the assessed collection costs. The department prefers payments made with secured funds.

    Depending on the type of payment made to the department, it can post to our system in 2-10 days. Once the payment posts, it can be an additional 3-5 days before the referring agency receives the payment. Overall, the normal turn-around is 5-10 days, with the possibility of taking up to 2 weeks.
    The department only acts as a collection agency, and therefore, all questions regarding registering for classes, obtaining transcripts or renewing a suspended license should be directed to the referring agency.
