Penalties and Interest for Individuals
Filing and paying your taxes late costs you money. The Minnesota Department of Revenue may assess a penalty if you intentionally file a false or fraudulent return to claim a refundable credit. The penalty is equal to 50% of the fraudulently claimed refund plus 50% of any understated tax. For more information, see Income Tax Credits and Property Tax Refund.
Note: You may ask us to cancel or reduce penalties, additional tax charges, and interest for late filing or payment if you have a reasonable cause or are negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. For details, see Penalty Abatement for Individuals.
You should pay your tax by the due date unless you are financially unable to make the payment.
