have not yet applied.

MN Dept of Revenue Newsroom, 22 Sept Press Release:

Star Tribune Article from 26 Sept:

News Release:

Pass along to those you know that may be eligible.


As you have likely heard by now, the Minnesota Legislature passed a bill earlier this year with respect to exempting military retired pay from state income taxes. This measure was passed in the Omnibus Budget rather than Omnibus Tax Bill and thus may cause some confusion or questions among members or tax preparers.

Questions should be addressed to the Minnesota Department of Revenue via their website,, or via phone at 651.296.3781 or 1.800.652.9094.

Additionally, tax preparation guidance should be able to be found by consulting the 2016 Minnesota Individual Income Tax Instructions once published.
