Transportation Sales Tax

Transportation Sales Tax

On September 17, 2019, the McLeod County Board of Commissioners approved by resolution the establishment of a 0.50% Transportation Sales Tax (also known as Transit Sales and Use Tax).  The tax is effective January 1, 2020 and will continue until December 31, 2049 or until revenues raised are sufficient to finance the identified transportation improvements, whichever occurs first.

A list of Proposed Transportation Projects identified within McLeod County for completion with the funds may be found here.  Please note the McLeod County Local Option Sales Tax - Proposed Project List does not establish a prioritization of projects, and projects may be completed in any order as recommended by the McLeod County Engineer and approved by the McLeod County Board of Commissioners.

Please see the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

The Minnesota Department of Revenue administers all local transportation sales and use taxes.  For additional information, please visit these Minnesota Department of Revenue links:
