Counties seek sales tax exemption for their radio equipment purchases


LITCHFIELD -- Kandiyohi County and Meeker County officials are in St. Paul today seeking the same kind of financial benefit for their emergency radio systems that 14 other counties received.

If successful in obtaining an exemption to the state sales tax on about $3 million worth of equipment and services for their 800-megahertz radio system, Meeker County could see savings of at least $175,000.

For Kandiyohi County the savings would be in the $134,000 range.
