Sales and Use Tax


Sales Tax Payment Extension for Eligible Businesses
In line with the state’s continued response to COVID-19, the Minnesota Department of Revenue is granting a 30-day Sales and Use Tax grace period for businesses identified in Executive Order 20-04. During this time the department will not assess penalties or interest.

Identified businesses with a monthly Sales and Use Tax payment due March 20, 2020, have until April 20 to make that payment. These businesses should still file their return by March 20.

At this time, the grace period for penalty and interest is only for monthly filers and only for the March 20 payment. Businesses can request additional relief from penalty and interest after April 20 for reasonable cause, including emergency declarations by the president and governor due to COVID-19. See Abatement Information for Businesses.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide additional information and guidance. See Our Response to COVID-19.

If you have questions or wish to request more time, call us at 651-296-6181 or 1-800-657-3777, or email

Sales Tax applies to most retail sales of goods and some services in Minnesota. You may owe Use Tax on taxable goods and services used in Minnesota when no sales tax was paid at the time of purchase. We also administer a number of local sales taxes.
