Email News Alerts

ST. PAUL -- Minnesota revenue officials will not be ready to pay Minnesotans for newly enacted tax breaks until April 3.

Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans today advised Minnesotans who may qualify for one of 10 new individual income tax breaks not to file income tax returns until then. He said that is when tax preparers, software companies and his Revenue Department should be ready.


Taxpayers who do not qualify for the new tax breaks can go ahead and file returns, he added.
