MN Taxpayers Get OK to File for 2013

Posted: Updated:

(KARE TV) ST. PAUL -- Go ahead and file. Do it now.

That's the message from the Minnesota Department of Revenue, which had been advising taxpayers across Minnesota to hold off until April 3 to file their taxes, to allow the department to make changes based on the new tax cuts passed by the legislature.

State Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans said Wednesday that state systems, paper forms and popular filing software have been updated to accommodate new breaks that affect one in 10 filers. "Many thousands of Minnesotans will benefit from the tax cuts that were passed by the legislature just over one week ago," said Governor Mark Dayton in a written statement. "I urge Minnesotans to file their taxes now, and claim all the tax cuts and credits for which they are eligible."

State officials initially urged residents to wait until Thursday to file their taxes. They have until midnight on April 15 to file without penalty or file for an extension.

Appearing with Gov. Mark Dayton, Frans said his department has completed necessary system revisions to make sure 300,000 people who qualify for the $49 million in tax breaks get their cut. People who had filed earlier will have their returns automatically reviewed for additional refunds.
