Minnesota Department of Revenue 2020 Unemployment Refund

If you received unemployment in 2020, and filed BEFORE Minnesota changed their law of taxing the unemployment income, you may be getting a letter informing you that you will be receiving an additional refund.

Why are you getting this?

The state of Minnesota had originally taxed the full amount of unemployment that you received in 2020. On September 13th the State of Minnesota started processing refunds to those that had paid income tax on the first $10,200 on their unemployment income. (You can see the article here: Minnesota Department of Revenue set to begin processing Unemployment Insurance and Paycheck Protection Program refunds | Minnesota Department of Revenue (

What do you need to do?

You do not need to do anything. The letter will explain that if you agree with the changes, they will send you the refund either to your bank account that you used for your 2020 taxes, or they will send you a check in the mail.

As always, if you have questions, please feel free to call our office and we will double check the numbers for you.
