Dry Cleaner Fees
Dry cleaning facilities or businesses engaged in dry cleaning must register with us each year and pay an annual fee. Fees include the dry cleaning registration fee, dry cleaning solvent fee, and dry cleaning solvent use fee.
The Minnesota Department of Revenue is responsible for administering three types of Dry Cleaner Fees.
Most dry cleaning facilities must register for and pay the Dry Cleaning Registration Fee each October. The fee is based on the dry cleaning facility's “full-time equivalence (FTE) rate”.
The rate is determined by the total hours worked by employees, owners, partners, and any others at the facility from July 1 of the previous year through June 30 of the current year divided by 2,000 (the number of hours a full-time employee works during a year).
