News for Tax Preparers

To help keep preparers informed of timely information, the Minnesota Department of Revenue will send updates to preparers and other interested parties who subscribe to the department's email subscription service.

These updates, which are issued on an “as-needed” basis, will provide:

  1. urgent messages, such as notices of incorrect error codes, ways to correct identified problems, or information we encourage you to pass on to your clients; and
  2. updates, statistics, reminders and other information pertinent to tax preparers during the filing season. 

Help prevent fraud

We encourage you to be on the lookout for fraud. We have seen an increase in the number of victims for W2 phishing scams. To raise awareness about the fraud attempts, we created a poster you may put up at your workplace, share with coworkers, or put in employee orientation books.

Need help?

In addition to email updates, the department is offering email addresses just for tax preparer inquiries.

Be sure to include your name, phone number and email address, if different than the return email address. Our goal is to answer all emails within three business days. If your question requires additional research that may go beyond the three-day turnaround goal, we will acknowledge your inquiry and respond as soon as possible.

With your help, we are looking forward to a very successful filing season.
