Department of Revenue will start reissuing over 128,000 expired one-time tax rebate checks next week

Date of Release

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Department of Revenue announced today that they will be reissuing over 128,000 one-time tax rebate checks that have gone uncashed and subsequently expired after their November and December issuance dates. The mailing of reissued checks will start next week and should be completed by mid-March.

What do the checks look like?

Unlike previously mailed checks, these will be mailed from the State of Minnesota. The checks are still protected by standard banking safeguards that help detect and deter fraud. 

Is the one-time tax rebate taxable?

This rebate payment is not taxable on your Minnesota income tax return.

The Internal Revenue Service determined this rebate to be taxable on the federal return. Due to this decision, all rebate recipients were sent a Form 1099-MISC to use when filing their 2023 individual income tax returns. If you include this payment in your federal adjusted gross income, subtract it from Minnesota taxable income on line 33 of Schedule M1M and on line 10 of Form M1PR on your state returns.

What if an eligible taxpayer still has not received a rebate?

We will work with taxpayers who are eligible but did not get their rebate. If a taxpayer thinks they are eligible and didn’t receive a rebate by May 1, 2024, they should contact the department at 651-556-3000.
