Here at Christianson PLLP, we have been notified that some of our clients are receiving 2015 refund checks from the MN Department of Revenue. Do not throw these checks away, they are real! These refunds relate back to retroactive legislation signed into law in early January 2017. The MN Department of Revenue reviewed 2015 Minnesota income tax returns to determine those that were affected by the changes made to the 2015 tax code and are in the process of mailing out refunds to affected individuals.
If you receive a letter and/or refund related to this, please keep the information with your 2017 tax papers and bring in to your tax preparer when you come in for your tax appointment. If you have additional questions or are still unsure about why you received this refund, feel free to call our Willmar office at 320-235-5937 or our Litchfield office at 320-373-1040.
