Department of Revenue to offer free electronic filing for property tax refunds

Rep. John Ward, DFL-Baxter, informs constituents about a new program: starting March 25, the Department of Revenue will begin offering free electronic filing for homeowners who qualify for a property tax refund.

This is the first time the Dept. of Revenue has offered a free online filing solution for individual property taxes.

“Many of us are already used to e-filing our federal and state income taxes and is this just another step in making tax filing season a little less of a pain,” said Ward. “If you qualify for a property tax refund, be sure to take a look at this new online filing solution.”

The Dept. of Revenue has a video explaining who qualifies to e-file and information needed to submit your refund online. For more information and instructions on Minnesota’s property tax refund, visit
