The Minnesota Department of Revenue is aligning with the Internal Revenue Service and will begin processing income tax returns on Wednesday, Jan. 30. 

The department will not process paper tax returns before the Jan. 30 opening date. 

There is no advantage to filing a paper return before this date and taxpayers will receive their tax refunds much faster by electronically filing and receiving their refund by direct deposit.

Taxpayers claiming residential energy credits or depreciation of property or general business credits will need to wait to file their returns in late February or into March due to more extensive IRS system changes.

Typically, these taxpayers file closer to the April 15 deadline.
