Some Minnesotans to receive tax rebate checks ranging from $260 to $1,300

(Fargo, ND) -- Governor Tim Walz is announcing that Minnesotans will start getting tax rebate checks as early as this week.  

The payments are up to $1,300 hundred dollars per household.

Individual filers will receive $260.

Married couples will receive $520.

Families with dependents will receive $260 dollars apiece for up to three dependents.  

Minnesotans with a gross adjusted income of up to $75 thousand in 2021 are eligible.  

They will not have to apply for the rebates.

Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Lisa Demuth is criticizing the rebates, saying the amounts are a fraction of the $2,000 rebate checks Walz promised while on the campaign trail.
