The Minnesota Department of Revenue on Thursday plans to offer business leaders some more explanation of sales tax changes in the wake of the legislative session that ended last month.

State officials aim to clear up any confusion about new tax exemptions and new taxes. A number of new changes take effect July 1.

The Associated Press reports that some business services will be subject to a state sales tax for the first time, mainly business-to-business transactions, including transactions related to automotive repair and on cable and satellite television service.

State revenue officials are hosting a series of Thursday explanation sessions related to tax topics – more info here.

Officials plan to post new or updated law change information and guidance on the state revenue agency website here. A 1 p.m. conference call for media is planned today.
