Reminder: Minot City Tax
Effective July 1, 2014, the Maximum Tax (Refund Cap) is eliminated for Minot's city tax. The 2% city tax rate must be applied to the entire retail sale, use tax accrual or taxable gross receipts transaction. Those retailers who previously had their tills programmed for the cap amount will need to have their tills reprogrammed for the July change. Also effective July 1, 2014, the city of Minot will no longer offer a compensation discount to permit holders reporting city tax.
The Minot city tax change on July 1, 2014 does not affect the Maximum Tax (Refund Cap) for Ward County, which still remains at a maximum of $12.50 per sale.
Questions regarding these changes should be directed to the City of Minot at 701.857.4784.

MTC Voluntary Disclosure
The North Dakota Voluntary Disclosure Program allows a company that has been conducting business activities in North Dakota or has been collecting but not remitting North Dakota sales tax to voluntarily come forward and resolve potential tax liabilities. The North Dakota Voluntary Disclosure Program allows such companies to anonymously seek a resolution with the Tax Commissioner for income, withholding and sales and use taxes. Taxpayers with liability in more than one state should consider applying for multi-state voluntary disclosure through the Multistate Tax Commission (MTC). More information about the MTC's Voluntary Disclosure Program and the application for Multi-state Voluntary Disclosure are available at the MTC Voluntary Disclosure site.
