Electronic Filing Speeds Up Refunds

The Minnesota Revenue Department says more than a million tax returns have been filed electronically, a faster and more accurate way to beat next month’s deadline.

“If you e-file, errors are significantly reduced and you will receive your refund faster than if you paper file,” Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans said. “Paper returns can take 30 days or longer to process and tend to have more errors than returns filed electronically.”

Last year, about 80 percent of the state’s returns (2.1 million) were filed electronically.
