Minnesota Senate and House Pass Additional Omnibus Tax Bill

Minnesota has amended its sales and use tax laws to conform with recent changes to the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement (SSUTA). The original 2008 Minnesota omnibus tax bill, revised Minnesota sales and use tax laws by amending the definition of “telecommunication services” and related definition; clarifying the treatment of bundled transactions; and eliminating the separate gross receipts tax on fur clothing and subjecting fur clothing to the sales tax. On May 5, 2008, the Minnesota House of Representatives passed another omnibus tax bill, H.F. 3149, providing relief from liability for purchasers, sellers, and certified service providers (CSPs) under certain circumstances; amending the exemption for durable medical equipment repair and replacement parts; and including the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico in the definition of “state.” Additional rules and regulations apply. (Ch. 154 (H.F. 3201), Laws 2008; H.F. 3149, Laws 2008)
