The following information was distributed in a press release from the MN Department of Revenue on August 8, 2019.
The Minnesota Department of Revenue reminds homeowners and renters to file for their 2017 property tax refund before it expires on Aug. 15, 2019. Claims for 2018 property tax refunds can also be filed on or before Aug. 15, 2019, though those claims for refund do not expire until next August. “Property tax refunds are important for Minnesota families, and with an average refund of over $925 for homeowners and over $700 for renters, we want to make sure all eligible taxpayers are taking the opportunity to claim their refunds,” said Revenue Commissioner Cynthia Bauerly. “About 680,000 eligible homeowners and renters in Minnesota received nearly $500 million in property tax refunds last year.” Taxpayers should keep these tips in mind as they file for property tax refunds.
Each tax return is different and we review every return to verify the information on the return. Returns may take longer to review and process than in prior years because of the increase in attempted refund fraud, so do not spend your refund until you see the money in your bank account. The department will take the time necessary to review property tax returns to make sure taxpayer dollars are not getting into the hands of criminals through scams, stolen personal information, and identity theft.
