May 20, 2014 Changes 

A new tax law was signed on May 20, 2014. This law increases refunds for qualifying homeowners and renters filing their 2013 property tax refund this year.  We have updated the forms and tables to reflect these changes. Please use this information to update your software as soon as possible.

Go to Forms, Specs, and Schema for updated forms and tables. As a reminder, your forms and tables need to exactly mirror our forms and tables.

Starting at 5 p.m. on June 4, 2014, we will reject any Homestead Credit Refunds for homeowners and property tax refunds for renters submitted using outdated forms or tables.

Thank you for your work to implement these changes into your products.

If you have any questions, please contact us at 651-556-4818 or email at Efile.DevSupport@state.mn.us
