What you need to know to receive Minnesota's $1,750 child tax credit this tax filing season

Gov. Tim Walz used the impending tax filing deadline to remind Minnesotans on Wednesday about the state's new child tax credit, which could mean thousands of dollars in refunds for some lower-income families.

The $1,750 credit is the highest child tax credit in the country. It applies to all children 17 years old and younger for eligible families, with no cap on the number of children.

Democrats included the credit in a $3 billion tax package passed last session, inspired by pandemic-era direct payments from the federal government that helped slash poverty rates across the country. DFL leaders say the credit could cut childhood poverty in Minnesota by a third.
