How to Collect Minnesota Sales Tax

Minnesota is a destination-based sales tax state. This means that, as an e-commerce seller, you are required to charge sales tax at the rate at your buyer’s ship-to address.

For example, you live in Minneapolis but make a sale to a buyer in Mankato, MN. You would charge the Mankato sales tax rate to your buyer.
