Hubbard County will consider sales tax

Hubbard County is positioning itself to take advantage of a 2013 law passed by the Minnesota Legislature allowing political subdivisions to enact a temporary general sales tax.


The theory is that a tax imposed on the second and third quarters of the year would fall during the height of the tourist season, when the county’s population grows exponentially and uses county and local roads.

Taxes would go toward county road projects that don’t have a state or federal match.
