Haven't filed your taxes yet? Find free resources here!
Updated: Mar 22, 2021
To complete the many returns we have started in response to the delays caused by COVID-19, we will NOT be accepting new returns this season. We know that this is concerning to many so we created a list of other free filing resources.
Important dates to know:
- July 15, 2020: Income taxes are due IF you owe. Those who receive refunds are eligible to receive them for the next 3 years.
- August 15, 2020: 2018 M1PRs are due. This includes renter’s rebates and property tax refunds for 2018.
- August 15, 2021: 2019 M1PRs are due. This includes renter’s rebates and property tax refunds for 2019.
Alternative Filing Options:
Have access to a computer or smartphone in your home or from to a friend or family member?
- Income taxes: We recommend MyFreeTaxes.com. We created this document to help guide you through the process. If you also need to file an M1PR (for a property tax refund or renter’s rebate), follow the directions on page 4. A second free online option is FreeFile created by the IRS.
- Renter’s Rebate only: Use MyFreeTaxes.com to file. See page 4 in this document.
- Property Tax Refund only: Minnesota Department of Revenue offers a free online filing option here: Property Tax Refund Online Filing System

and review the following instructions for the form:
Don’t have access to a computer or smartphone in your home or belonging to a friend or family member?

Avoiding fees (for those who owe and will be filing late)
If you owe taxes, there are 3 types of fees you may incur:
- late filing fee
- late paying fee
- interest on what you owe
To avoid all 3 fees, file an extension AND pay your estimated taxes early here:
