Minnesota Tax Credits for Workers and Families

current agenda images (3)

Strong tax credits for lower-income Minnesotans can boost their incomes and get children off to a stronger start in life. They also contribute to a fairer tax system in Minnesota. Our work on tax credits particularly focuses on the Working Family Credit and the Renters' Credit property tax refund.

More information on our advocacy efforts to strengthen Minnesota's state tax credits is available on our Working Family Credit and Renters' Credit agenda pages.
