Minnesota Income Tax Forms Rates & Services
Residency is determined primarily by where an individual resides. For Minnesota taxes, residency is determined by two rules:
- Domicile (permanent residency)
- 183-day rule
Taxpayers who are residents of another state may still be considered Minnesota residents for income tax purposes if they meet the following two conditions:
- they spend at least 183 days in Minnesota (any portion of a day is counted as a full day), and
- they (or their spouse) own, rent, or occupy an abode (a living unit suitable for year-round use, that is equipped with its own cooking and bathing facilities) in Minnesota.
Military personnel that served in a combat zone or hazardous duty area any time from Sept. 11, 2001 through Dec. 31, 2006, may be eligible for a credit of $59 for each month served.
You may be eligible for the Federal Earned Income Credit if, in 2006, you had earned income and meet one of the following requirements:
- You have one child at home and your job income was less than $32,001 (single filers) or $34,001 (married filing joint).
- You have 2 or more children at home and your job income was less than $36,348 (single filers) or $38,348 (married filing joint).
- You have no children, are between the ages of 25 and 64, and your job income was less than $12,120 (single filers) or $14,120 (married filing joint).
If you qualify for the Federal Earned Income Credit, you automatically qualify for the Minnesota Working Family Credit.
