MN's tax delinquency list has been updated

The Minnesota Department of Revenue has updated its online posting of Minnesota businesses prohibited from purchasing liquor, beer or wine to resell. The department updates the list each month to reflect companies that have failed to pay taxes to the state.

One active Perham business is on the list: Silver Moon Lounge and Steakhouse. Los Jalapenos in Perham, as well as the Los Jalapenos location in Wadena, are also on the list, however both of those businesses are closed. Other surrounding area businesses on the list include: Companeros and Dorset House in Park Rapids, Battle Lake Oasis in Battle Lake, and Hooligans in Lake Park.

The department posts a list of active liquor establishments that owe delinquent state taxes and therefore are prohibited from purchasing alcoholic beverages to resell. Distributors are prohibited from the sale or delivery to the listed businesses. Once a business pays the taxes owed, we remove it from the list within two business days.

Businesses on the list have delinquent taxes in any of the following categories: Sales, withholding, partnership, S corporations and corporate. Minnesota sales and withholding taxes are "trust taxes" in that customers or employees pay these taxes with the expectation that businesses will remit them to the state on their behalf. It cannot be used by a business as additional operating capital or for any other purpose.
