Want a faster tax refund?


Instead of waiting for an income tax paper refund check to arrive in the mail, the Minnesota Department of Revenue reports taxpayers may choose to have a tax refund deposited directly into their bank account whether they file taxes on paper or electronically.

All taxpayers need to do is select “direct deposit of your refund” when filing their income tax return. The average state income tax refund is $577.
