Sales tax in Minnesota?


Well-known member
Hi guys!

My dad's going to Minnesota in a week and he'll do some makeup shopping for me
However, I'm not sure about how much the sales tax is, does anyone know? Oh and also, does anyone happen to know what the duty free prices for Chanel's Rouge allure laque are in US dollars?

The general sales tax rate is 6.875%, so if you wanted to buy somethig listed as $1.00, you actually pay $1.07 (it rounds up). HTH!

Actually, the general sales tax is one thing, but it's higher in certain areas - Minneapolis, for example, is higher because there's an additional city sales tax plus an additional Hennepin county sales tax. Last I checked, Duluth is higher as well.

Also, California's cost of living is also higher - while minimum wage is $8, Minnesota's minimum wage is only $6.15 (for large employers - small employers only have to pay out $5.25). Ontop of that, thanks to state law overtime is only required after 48 hours in a week, not 40.

Minnesota has the third-lowest minimum hourly wage in the country - there's no way we could afford to pay 9% sales tax.
