Who receives the Working Family Credit?
In 2015, more than 330,000 households received the Working Family Credit, which is more than 12 percent of all Minnesota households that file state income taxes in Minnesota. This state tax credit encourages and supports work, makes the tax system fairer, and helps working people all across the state meet their basic needs and support their families. About half of all workers and families that receive the credit live in Greater Minnesota, and half in the Twin Cities metro area. This issue brief includes information about the Working Family Credit for each Minnesota county.
