The families are averaging $1,373 for a total of $ 116 million in tax credits to date. Governor Walz is encouraging Minnesotans to file for the new Child Tax Credit and says millions are going back into the pockets of families to help with groceries, child care, and more.

Minnesotans can claim up to $1,750 per qualifying child with no limit to the number of children claimed under the new Child Tax Credit but must file a 2023 individual income tax return in order to do so.
