Sales Tax Extension

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, this 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 for reasonable cause after April 20.

The Department of Revenue will continue to monitor the situation and provide additional information and guidance. If you have questions or wish to request more time, call the Minnesota Department of Revenue at 651-296-6181 or 1-800-657-3777, or email
