Over 100,000 Minnesotans to Get Second Chance to Cash Rebate Checks
St. Paul, MN (KROC-AM News)-Thousands of Minnesotans will get another chance to cash in on one-time rebate checks.
The Minnesota Department of Revenue says nearly $1 billion was returned to 2.1 million taxpayers earlier this year. The rebates were part of a tax law that passed out of the 2023 legislative session.
On Tuesday officials announced plans to begin reissuing rebate checks that were not cashed within their 60-day expiration window. One batch of checks will be sent out this week and the remainder are set to hit mailboxes across the state in early December.
The checks will come in white envelopes from Submittable Holdings located in Missoula, Montana and will carry the signature of Revenue Commissioner Paul Marquart, a Department of Revenue news release says.
The new checks are scheduled to void by early next year. Officials say the department will Minnesotans who are unable to cash their second rebate check before it expires.
Any of the uncashed rebate checks that expire after the reissuing will eventually be turned over to the Minnesota Department of Commerce’s unclaimed property division.
The one-time rebate law provided payments of up to $1,300 for eligible taxpayers, including:
- $520 for married couples filing a joint return with adjusted gross income of $150,000 or less
- $260 for all other individuals with adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less
- Another $260 for each dependent claimed on your return, up to three dependents ($780)
