On July 23, 2013, the County Board imposed a ¼% transit sales tax pursuant to Minnesota Statute Section 297A in order to raise money needed for the County’s contribution toward public infrastructure costs related to the Destination Medical Center initiative.
In addition to the 6.875% Minnesota sales and use tax, retail sales and taxable services in Olmsted County may be subject to local sales and use taxes such as 0.25% Transit tax.
The Minnesota Department of Revenue will administer, collect, and enforce the Olmsted County transit taxes as authorized under Minnesota Statutes, section(s) 297A.99.
Note that certain cities within Olmsted County (Rochester, for example) also have local sales taxes either administered by the Minnesota Department of Revenue or by the city itself. Contact the applicable city(s) with questions.
