Minnesota Department of Revenue announces next steps for newly passed tax rebate paymentsMay 25, 2023 09:46AM ● By Content Editor
From the Minnesota Department of Revenue - May 25, 2023
Governor Tim Walz recently signed legislation that directs the Minnesota Department of Revenue to distribute direct tax rebate payments to eligible taxpayers. These payments are:
$520 for married joint filers who had a 2021 adjusted gross income of $150,000 or less
$260 for all other filers who had a 2021 adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less
An additional $260 per dependent, up to three dependents, for filers who had a 2021 adjusted gross income at or below the thresholds above
Taxpayers will not have to apply for this payment. Revenue will use tax year 2021 individual income tax or property tax refund returns to determine eligibility and distribute these tax rebate payments. We will reduce rebate amounts for part-year residents based on the percentage of the year they lived in Minnesota.
A secure online portal for banking and address updates will be available this summer. Taxpayers who are eligible for the rebate payments will be able to access the portal and update their information if necessary.
“With the legislation now signed into law, we can begin implementing the tax rebate payments that were targeted to those who need them most,” said Revenue Commissioner Paul Marquart. “We know this money is important for Minnesota families and we will allow time for eligible taxpayers to update their address and banking information this summer with the anticipation of sending out the refunds in early fall.”
