Local Option Transportation Sales & Use Tax

Revenue generated from the tax will be dedicated to transportation and transit needs in the County pursuant to Minnesota legislation under statute 297A.993 which allows County Boards to impose a transportation sales tax at a rate of up to one half of one percent.

Background Information

Throughout October and November of 2018, Waseca County conducted a series of presentations in each of the County’s four communities to bring forward information and further discuss implementation of a local option transportation sales and use tax.

Following a public hearing on November 20, 2018 and further discussion at the December 6, 2018 Board meeting, Waseca County enacted a 1/2 percent countywide local option transportation sales and use tax to address transportation funding needs throughout the County. The tax went into effect on April 1, 2019.

Following a public hearing on September 5, 2023, the Waseca County Board of Commissioners adopted Resolution 2023-24, which thereby amended the Waseca County Transportation Sales Tax Project List.
