Abatement Information

‚ÄčPenalties can be abated (cancelled) if circumstances beyond your control prevented you from filing or paying taxes on time.

If I receive a penalty notice, how do I request an abatement?

Send the Minnesota Department of Revenue a written request within 60 days explaining the specific events or circumstances that prevented you from filing or paying on time.

How will you notify me of my abatement request?

We will notify you in writing whether your abatement request has been approved or denied. In general, abatement requests are denied unless the tax and interest have been paid in full.

For more information about abatement requests, view the Collection Information.

For more information about Individual Income Tax penalties, see Penalties and Interest for Individual Income Tax.
