  2. Location and Products or Services: The sales tax rate varies from product to product and location to location. You must check the sales tax rate applicable to your product according to the product category, county, and city in Minnesota.
  3. Exemptions: Almost all goods are eligible for sales tax regulation. However, products, including most clothing, prescription drugs, raw groceries, and few more, are exempted under Minnesota Law. So you should check with Minnesota state government as to which goods and services sold in Minnesota are subject to sales tax.

Step 4 – Calculate Sales Tax:

After determining the sales tax rate according to the location and type of purchases, it is easy to calculate the sales tax amount charged on the product and gross price (amount after tax) of a product.


Example # 1:

For instance, you are selling a laptop bag on your store in Duluth, Minnesota, having a net price tag of $85. The amount that a buyer has to pay (including sales tax) on a check out would be:


Manual Method:

Net Price (amount before Tax) of a laptop bag: $85

Total Sales Tax rate: 1.50% (Duluth) + 0.50% (Saint Louis County) + 6.875% (Minnesota State) = 8.875%


Total Sales Tax amount = $85 x 8.875% = $7.5

Gross Price (Amount after Tax) = 85 + 7.5 = $92.5


It means the buyer has to pay for a laptop bag on a cash counter, which would be $92.5.


Using our Sales Tax Calculator:

All of the steps mentioned above can be skipped to get an instant result using our Sales Tax Calculator. All you need is:

  1. Input the $85 Net Price of a laptop bag as Amount Before Tax
  2. Input or select 875% of the combined Sales Tax rate on the Tax Rate menu.

Our calculator will automatically calculate the result, and represents it in 3 different forms, as shown in the image below:

Reverse Sales Tax Calculation

In the example above, we have explained to you to calculate the Sales Tax amount payable in a product, and the Gross Price of the Product.

But there are also instances when you are required to deduce how much sales tax buyer has actually paid on a product or you may want to check the accuracy of the sales tax indicated on your item's receipt.

This is where the Reverse Sales Tax Calculation Kicks in. And luckily, our Minnesota Sales Tax Calculator can perform this calculation like a Pro.


Example:

Your buyer has paid $35 for a laptop charger at your store in Maplewood, Minnesota. Now the buyer is inquiring how much the laptop charger actually cost before the sales tax was added. So you need to follow the steps below to determine the amount before tax (net price) of a laptop charger:

Gross Price (Amount after Tax) of laptop charger: $35

Total Sales Tax rate: 0.00% (Maplewood) + 0.50% (Ramsey County) + 6.875% (Minnesota State) = 7.375%


Manual Method:

Gross Price with sales tax = [Net Price × (tax rate in decimal form + 1)]

35 = [Net Price x ((7.375/100) + 1)]

35 = Net Price x 1.07

$32.7 = Net Price


So the original Price (net price) of the laptop charger was $32.7.

Using our Sales Tax Calculator:

You can also use our Sales Tax Calculator for Reverse Sales Tax calculation to skip the aforementioned manual method. All you need is:

  1. Input the $35 Gross Price of Laptop Charger as Amount after Tax
  2. Input or select 7.375% of combined Sales Tax Rate on the Tax Rate

Our calculator will automatically calculate the result and represents it in 3 different forms.
