Filing for the Homestead Credit Refund (for Homeowners)

Attention Homeowners
Property Tax refunds for homeowners are on a different schedule this year due to tax law changes, including a law that increased refunds for qualifying homeowners and renters.

If you are affected by these changes, we'll send you a letter after we process your Homestead Credit Refund return. This letter will explain how we adjusted your return and list any changes we made to your refund. You will get your refund within 30 days of the date on the letter.

you owe any Minnesota taxes, government debts, or criminal fines, we may apply your refund to the amount you owe. We’ll send you a separate notice if that happens.
