Tax Identity Theft

​It’s tax season and tax identity theft is a real issue.

Tax-related identity theft occurs when someone uses your Social Security number to file a false tax return for a refund.

You may be unaware that this has happened until you file your return and discover that a return already has been filed using your SSN.

Learn more about tax identity theft at the Minnesota Department of Revenue and through the federal IRS.

Reparations Annual Report

​The 2016 Minnesota Crime Victims Reparations Board annual report is now available.

Reparations covers violent crimes including homicides, assaults, robberies, child abuse, sexual assault and impaired driving.

During fiscal year 2016, 32 percent of all the new claims received were domestic violence-related.

Critical programs provided $3.2 million in financial assistance to 1,150 victims of:

  • Violent crime for medical and mental health care.
  • Funeral expenses.
  • Lost wages.
  • Survivor benefits.

The reparations program recently expanded its coverage to include mileage reimbursement for victims to help with the cost of traveling to medical or counseling appointments.
