If you are concerned about a potentially fraudulent contact by an individual or an organization representing themselves as being from the Minnesota Department of Revenue, please call 651-296-3781 or 1-800-652-9094. An authorized staff member will be able to determine if the contact you received was legitimate.
Use caution and never provide personal information unless you are absolutely sure the situation is legitimate.
We will never ask you to provide, update, or verify personal information through unsolicited emails. Do not respond to such emails, and contact us with questions or concerns.
