Submit Municipal Bond Information Electronically
Log in to the Electronic Data Exchange (EDE) system to electronically transmit municipal bond information returns to the department.
Information returns for payments of interest-dividends you made must be electronically transmitted to the department by June 1 of the following year, using our secure EDE system. You must provide this information separately from other interest or dividend information returns that are generally due each year on March 31.
Before you can use the EDE system, you must have a user ID, which is different from any Minnesota tax ID you may have. Complete the online reporting registration form to receive a user ID and temporary password.
If you already have a user ID, additional information will be provided when you complete the online reporting registration form.
Fact Sheet 19, Municipal Bond Reporting Information includes step-by-step instructions for using the EDE system.
