The Minnesota Department of Revenue has reissued 128,000 one-time tax rebate checks that were issued last year but went uncashed and expired. These checks were mailed to the most recent address we have on file for recipients and will not expire for two years.

In all, we issued nearly 2.1 million Direct Tax Rebate payments  — totaling nearly $1 billion  —  under a law passed in May 2023. Eligibility and rebate amounts were based on previously filed 2021 income tax or property tax refund returns. 

We initially sent payments by direct deposit or paper check in August and September. We reissued 150,000 uncashed checks in November and December. Then, in February and March, we reissued checks that still had not been cashed. 

Rebate Payment is Taxable on Federal Return
The IRS determined this payment is taxable on federal returns. We'll send Form 1099-MISC to all rebate recipients to use when filing U.S. individual income tax returns for 2023. If you include this payment in federal adjusted gross income, subtract it from Minnesota taxable income on line 33 of Schedule M1M and line 10 of Form M1PR.
