Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from Minnesota Department of Revenue

    ST. PAUL, Minn., April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Minnesota Department of
 Revenue recently revoked the sales tax permit of a Brooklyn Park business.
 The department revoked the permit for failing to pay state sales tax.

 shop.  The department alleges this business owes the state more than
 $12,400 in sales tax, penalty and interest.
     Minnesota sales tax is a "trust tax."  Customers who pay sales tax trust
 and expect businesses to send it to the state on their behalf.  It must not be
 used by a business as additional operating capital or for any other purpose.
     If a person or company makes taxable retail sales in Minnesota after
 revocation of a Minnesota sales tax permit, the action is considered a felony
 under Minnesota law.
