Licensing surcharge to be assessed beginning July 1, 2009
The Minnesota Office of Enterprise Technology (OET) recently sponsored and the
Minnesota Legislature passed legislation requiring a 10% surcharge of no less than $5
and no more than $150 on each business, commercial, professional or occupational license.
The funding from this surcharge will go to OET, which will establish an electronic
licensing system for the state. The surcharge will be in place through June 30, 2015.
