Transportation Sales Tax

Transportation Sales Tax

Starting January 1, 2017, Cook County will have a 0.5 percent transit sales and use tax. The Minnesota Department of Revenue will administer this tax. These payments are made directly to the State of Minnesota not Cook County.


Revenues will fund the projects identified in the Cook County Transportation Sales Tax Project List in Resolution 2016-71.


This .05 percent transit sales tax applies to retail sales made within Cook County.
