Schema change
To best serve taxpayers and tax preparers we must make a schema change. The new MNIndividual2014 schema has been posted on our software vendor page (Please note the PR schema version is also 1.2 and zipped in this posting). We will no longer accept Version 1.1 beginning Monday, January 12, 2015. The Minnesota Department of Revenue will have schema version 1.2 in production. We will open for controlled launch on January 12, 2015 as planned. You are welcome to submit files in the new schema version 1.2 at that time.  We ask vendors to make the appropriate changes in preparation for this version change.
