ST. PAUL, Minn. - For some Minnesota taxpayers special attention from the Department of Revenue could be a good thing this year.
Department officials advised taxpayers Monday on how they can claim some of the last-minute breaks that lawmakers recently approved.
They said one in 10 filers - or as many as 270,000 people - will get some measure of relief this year. That grows substantially next year when a bigger Minnesota deduction for married filers becomes available to 650,000.
Officials say people who may qualify should hold off until April 3 to file a return. Those who already filed and may need to adjust their taxes will be contacted with a letter via the mail If you've already filed and are not contacted, the Dept. of Revenue will automatically adjust those taxes and will direct deposit or send a check in the mail.
To find out if you qualify go to the MN Dept. of Revenue website and click on the orange tab that says "Tax Law Changes."
