Starting a Business


Basic Tax Information

The Minnesota Department of Revenue has basic tax information for people who are starting a business.

The following information should not be considered all-inclusive. Other steps may be appropriate for your specific type of business.

Note: If you’re buying an existing business or its stock, you must notify us before the transfer or you could be liable for tax debts we are collecting from that business (see Successor Liability).
