The Department of Revenue adopts rules to implement or make specific the laws which it administers. Adopted rules have the force and effect of law.
"Proposed Rules" are rules that the Department is planning to adopt, but which have not yet been finally adopted. The Minnesota Administrative Procedures Act (APA), Chapter 14 of the Minnesota Statutes, requires agencies to publish proposed rules in the State Register and to mail them to the agency's Rulemaking Mailing List. In addition, the agency is required to make reasonable efforts to notify persons who may be significantly affected by the rules being proposed, by giving notice of its intention in newsletters, newspapers, or other publications, or through other means of communication.
The following contains information and links related to current rulemaking activities by the Department of Revenue, including published notices, availability of rule drafts, how to submit comments, the status of the rule adoption process and hearings, information about newly adopted rules and the names of contact people, as well as information on rules adopted within the last two to three years.
