State of MN to issue Tax Rebate Payments
The Minnesota Department of Revenue will send direct tax rebate payments for tax year 2021 to eligible Minnesotans after a recent tax law update. The legislation, signed May 24, 2023, provides payments of:
$520 for married couples filing a joint return with adjusted gross income of $150,000 or less
$260 for all other individuals with adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less
Another $260 for each dependent claimed on your return, up to three dependents
You do not have to apply for this payment. We will use 2021 income tax or property tax refund returns to determine who is eligible and issue payments. We expect to send payments this fall.
Who is Eligible
You are eligible if you meet all the following requirements:
Were a Minnesota resident for part or all of 2021
Filed one of the following returns for that tax year:
Form M1, Minnesota Individual Income Tax
Form M1PR, Homestead Credit Refund (for Homeowners) and Renter’s Property Tax Refund
Filed your return by December 31, 2022
Reported adjusted gross income of $150,000 or less for married joint filers, or $75,000 or less for all other filers.
Note: Adjusted gross income is listed on line 1 of Form M1 and Form M1PR.
We will reduce payment amounts for part-year residents based on the percentage of the year they lived in Minnesota.
What Happens Next
We will determine eligibility and payment amounts based on your 2021 Minnesota returns. You do not need to do anything now. It is expected that payments will be issued this fall.
