Minnesota taxpayers will get more federal tax deductions because of new measure

There’s good financial news for Minnesota taxpayers, concerning their federal tax. The Legislature sent Governor Mark Dayton a bill that’s going to allow about 250,000 Minnesota taxpayers to claim brand new federal tax deductions. These tax deductions will be coming out of their state releases

These federal tax deductions were finalized on Monday when the House of Representatives gave the legislation its final approval. The process was a little difficult and the approval of the new measure sat in the House for a little while. This was due to some Republicans that objected to several of the changes that were made by the Senate from an earlier version of the House bill.

There will be plenty of people that will be eligible to benefits from the new bill that has been passed. Some of those that are eligible for the deductions are teachers who will be able to claim education expenses, homeowners that can take itemized deductions for their mortgage insurance premiums, and also college students that use higher education tuition deductions. Parents can also use the higher education tuition deductions.

Governor Mark Dayton had mentioned that he would gladly sign the bill. Minnesota taxpayers will be happy to know about these federal tax deductions, and should look to see if they are eligible to take advantage of them. Be sure to check if you’re one of the 250,000 or so Minnesota taxpayers that are eligible.
