Local Sales and Use Tax


 Effective April 1, 2014, the Wadena County Board of Commissioners imposed a one half of one percent (.5%) transit sales tax pursuant to Minnesota Statute Section 297A in order to raise money needed for additional highway and road projects.

In addition to the 6.875% Minnesota Sales and Use Tax, retail sales and taxable services in Wadena County may be subject to local sales and use taxes such as the .5% local option sales tax.

The Minnesota Department of Revenue will administer, collect, and enforce the Wadena County Local Option Sales Tax as authorized under Minnesota Statutes, section(s) 297A.99.
