Minnesota Legislature signed tax law changes for the tax year 2022 into effect on May, 24th 2023.
These tax law changes effect the calculation of the Minnesota Property Tax Refund M1PR and provides a one-time increase of the 2022 Homestead Credit Refund or Renter's Property Tax Refund claimed on Form M1PR. The state released the updated forms in June.
The program is currently updated to account for this tax law change at this time so any returns filed on or after June 15, 2023 will have been filed with the updated calculations.
What are the changes?
The bill made the following changes:
Refunds for homeowners and renters were increased by 20.5%.
Homeowners may now qualify for a special refund if their property tax increased by more than 6% — rather than 12% — from 2022 to 2023. ( The state will publish more information when available.)
The income requirements have not changed for claiming the Homestead credit or the Renter's Property Tax Refund.
The bill also makes other changes to property tax refunds, including:
- Homestead Credit Refund — Homeowners who have an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), instead of a Social Security Number, can now qualify for homestead status for their residence and claim the refund.
- Renter's Refund — Starting with rent paid in 2024: Renters will claim the refund on their Minnesota income tax return (Form M1). Owners and managing agents must provide a Certificates of Rent Paid (CRP) and submit CRPs to Revenue by January 31.
How will this affect my refund?
Taxpayers who already filed a 2022 Form M1PR may see a larger refund than originally claimed.
