Department of Revenue announces process for one-time tax rebates
The Minnesota Department of Revenue announced today the process to send 2.4 million one-time tax rebate payments to Minnesotans. This rebate was part of the historic 2023 One Minnesota Budget, signed into law by Governor Tim Walz on May 24, 2023.
“This rebate will help millions of Minnesotans pay for everyday expenses such as groceries, school supplies, rent, or childcare,” said Revenue Commissioner Paul Marquart. “We know it will be very valuable to a lot of people, and we look forward to sending payments out in early fall.”
Taxpayers will not apply for this rebate payment. The department will use tax year 2021 individual income tax or property tax refund returns to determine eligibility and distribute these tax rebate payments in the early fall.
Eligible recipients who have not changed their address or banking information from what was on their 2021 income tax or property tax refund returns do not need to take any action.
Taxpayers who are eligible for the rebate and need to update their address or bank information should visit a new online portal at taxrebate.mn.gov to update that information before 5:00 pm CST on Friday, July 28, 2023.
There is no application for the one-time tax rebate payment. Only eligible rebate recipients who need to update their information need to use the secure online portal.
