Withholding Information and Your Income Tax Return

If you had Minnesota income tax withheld from your income, complete Schedule M1W, Minnesota Income Tax Withheld. List all Minnesota income tax withheld from your wages, salaries, pensions, or other income. You can generally find Minnesota tax withheld on federal Forms W-2s and Forms 1099.

Include Schedule M1W with your Minnesota income tax return (Form M1, Individual Income Tax). Do not include your W-2s or 1099s with your state return.

Note: Keep copies of your W-2s and 1099s with your tax records in case there are questions about your return. For more information, see Recordkeeping for Income Tax Purposes.

How do I complete Schedule M1W?

Use Schedule M1W to report your wages and income tax withheld. Only report your Minnesota income tax withheld. Do not report federal income tax withheld, Social Security tax withheld, or another state's tax withheld. On most W-2s, you can find state tax withheld in box 17 and your employer’s Minnesota state tax ID number in box 15.

What if I am a nonresident partner or shareholder?

You may have Minnesota tax withheld on Schedule KPI or Schedule KS. Include this amount (if any) on Schedule M1W.
