Domestic Violence

​Domestic violence took the lives of at least 24 people in Minnesota last year according to the Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women.

Studies have shown that domestic violence is one of the greatest causes of injury, or even death, for women.  The Office of Justice Programs, Crime Victims Reparations Program provides financial assistance to victims of domestic violence and their families.

The Reparations Program assists victims who report crimes related to domestic violence by paying for some expenses that result from the crime.  In fiscal year 2017, 31 percent of reparations applications resulted from crimes involving domestic violence.

Help is available for domestic violence victims:

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.
