Efforts to Rectify Minnesota Rebate Checks Woes

After two failed attempts to cash rebate checks due to unclear labeling, Minnesota’s Revenue Department prepares to distribute $260 per person payments to around 128,000 eligible recipients, totaling approximately $48 million.

Unlike previous checks with voided 60-day windows for cashing, the new batch will prominently display the Department of Revenue’s return address, ensuring recipients recognize them as legitimate state-issued payments.

Revenue Commissioner Paul Marquart emphasizes the extended two-year validity of the new checks, with unclaimed amounts eventually transferred to state unclaimed property if not cashed within the timeframe.
