It has low crime and unemployment rates, good public schools, and excellent healthcare options. On the downside, however, winters can be long and harsh. The state also has some of the highest income and sales taxes in the country. Property taxes are also considered fairly high.

Who Must File?

Minnesota residents must file a state income tax return (Form M1) if their gross income (inside and outside of the state) meets the minimum annual filing requirement ($13,825 for 2023).

Part-Year & Non-Residents

For those who are part-year residents, you must file a Minnesota tax return if your gross income earned as a resident, as well as income received while a non-resident, meets the minimum filing requirement for full-year residents.

Non-residents are also required to file if their Minnesota gross income meets the minimum filing requirement for residents. Non-residents should use Form M1, as well as Schedule M1NR.

For example, Hermantown City has a combined sales tax rate of 8.875%. This rate includes the state sales taxes (6.875%), city (1.5%), and county (.05%).
