Save Back-to-School Receipts to Claim Valuable Tax Benefits!

It’s time to start back-to-school shopping, which may include purchasing supplies for distance learning due to COVID-19. The Minnesota Department of Revenue reminds you that many school supply purchases may qualify for valuable K-12 tax benefits on your 2020 Minnesota income tax return. Remember to save your school supply receipts.

"Every year, parents across Minnesota invest in their children’s education by purchasing school supplies,” said Revenue Commissioner Cynthia Bauerly. “This year, distance learning may have changed the nature of investments made. Parents should keep receipts for these purchases, including distance learning needs, and claim the K-12 Education Credit or Subtraction to help save money when it comes time to file taxes.”
