Revenue Recapture

We can take (“recapture”) your tax refunds and use them to pay debts we're collecting for other agencies or federal tax debts. This process, called Revenue Recapture, can apply to all Minnesota income tax, political contribution, and property tax refunds.

When we take a state tax refund, we apply it to your debts in the following order:

  1. State taxes

  2. Child support

  3. Court-ordered criminal restitution

  4. Debts to a hospital or an ambulance service

  5. Debts to other agencies in Minnesota, such as student loans and other debts

  6. Debts to government agencies from other states

  7. Federal taxes

(See Minnesota Statutes, section 270A.03 and section 270C.41).
