On April 1, 2006, the 0.50% local option sales and use tax was implemented. Revenues generated from the taxes will be used to finance lake improvement projects in the Shell Rock River Watershed Management Plan.
The tax was extended to 15 years or $15 million, whichever comes first, by the majority of city voters in 2016.
More information about the tax can be found on the Minnesota Department of Revenue’s website at https://www.revenue.state.mn.us/local-sales-tax-information. Specific questions regarding the local option sales tax should be directed to the Minnesota Department of Revenue. The State is administering and collecting the local option sales tax on behalf of the City.
