Tax Law Changes


Refunds in Progress for Affected 2020 Minnesota Returns


We've finished adjusting 2020 Minnesota tax returns affected only by law changes to the treatment of Unemployment Insurance (UI) compensation and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness. As of January 27, 2022, we have:

  • Adjusted about 540,000 Individual Income Tax returns and issued refunds to taxpayers affected only by the UI and PPP changes.

  • Issued over $300 million in refunds or reductions in taxes owed to these taxpayers.

  • Adjusted and issued refunds for all 2,200 entity-level corporate returns affected by the PPP changes.

We are manually adjusting another 3,000 returns affected by non-UI/PPP law changes or with both UI/PP and other adjustments that require more time to review and process due to their complexity. 

Taxpayers who think they qualified but did not receive a refund or a letter explaining changes to their returns can contact us at 651-296-3781. 

These tax law changes were enacted July 1, 2021, along with other retroactive provisions affecting tax years 2017 to 2020. We have updated Minnesota tax forms and instructions for these years.

Note: When filing or amending a Minnesota return, be sure to use the most current forms or update your tax software.


We'll continue to provide updates, guidance, and resources as needed on our website and through email bulletins. For the latest information:
