On May 31, Minnesota Gov. Walz signed into law the 2019 Minnesota Omnibus Tax Bill. This new law brings some much-needed simplification to Minnesota’s tax code by conforming to many provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). However, because it decouples from many other provisions of the TCJA, it retains some of the complexity in Minnesota’s tax code that tax professionals experienced during the 2019 filing season. In addition, because its conformity to most TCJA provisions is retroactive to the 2018 tax year, it is unclear when taxpayers who have already filed their 2018 Minnesota returns should amend them, or what taxpayers should do if they have extended but not yet filed their 2018 Minnesota tax returns. Attend this live webinar to learn about the known implications of the bill and what the Minnesota Department of Revenue (DOR) may adopt to address the impact of the bill’s retroactivity.
