Minnesota Tax Credits

The Family Partnership is partnering with the Minnesota Department of Revenue to help spread the word about the new tax credits available to individuals and families. Learn about tax credits that could lead to lower payments and higher returns, if you qualify.

Child Tax Credit

Even if you are not required to file a Minnesota income tax return, you can still file to claim Minnesota tax benefits. The new Minnesota Child Tax Credit (CTC) is available to Minnesotans who have children under age 18. By filing a Minnesota tax return, you may qualify for $1,750 per child with no limit on the number of children. You can receive a refund even if you do not owe tax.

Working Family Credit

The Working Family Credit (WFC) gives tax relief to individuals whose income is below a certain level. The credit can reduce the tax you owe and provide you with a tax refund.

K-12 Education Credits

​Minnesota has two tax relief programs for families with children in kindergarten through 12th grade: the K-12 Education Subtraction and the K-12 Education Credit. Both programs help lower taxes and may provide a larger refund.

Property Tax Refunds for Homeowners and Renters

Minnesota has two property tax relief programs for homeowners and renters: the Homestead Credit Refund (for Homeowners) and the Renter’s Property Tax Refund. Both programs can provide relief to property taxes paid.
