Revenue Recapture Agencies

Note: We are updating how we administer the Revenue Recapture Program. If your agency participates in the program, you must complete a new class and Service Level Agreement with us. For details, see Revenue Recapture Training and Service Level Agreements.

Revenue Recapture Program

The Minnesota Department of Revenue is authorized to take (recapture) taxpayer refunds and apply them to outstanding debts owed to state agencies, the University of Minnesota and certain local governmental units. View the Revenue Recapture Act law, Minnesota Statutes, sections 270A.01 to 270A.12 and Minnesota Administrative Rules, Chapter 8165.

The department’s recapture program is in addition to, and not a substitute for, other collection tactics used by any state agency.

Claimant agencies may contact the Revenue Recapture Unit by:

To participate in Revenue Recapture an agency must have a signed agreement on file with the department. To do so:

  1. Download the agreement.
  2. Email the completed agreement to us at revenue.recapture@state.mn.us, as an attachment.
