News from Representative Tom Emmer

Dear Friend,

Tax Day is upon us! Next Monday, April 15th, we once again file our taxes.  As this day quickly approaches, I want to take the time to provide you with resources to assist you during tax season.

Tax returns are due Monday, April 15th. If you have not already filed, you can file through the Internal Revenue Service here.  To request an extension, please visit here. The IRS is now providing a new tax transcript format with extra protections for your personal information. If you need to make changes to your personal information or request your tax transcript, you can find that on the IRS website here.

Passing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act brought changes to tax filing, returning more of your hard-earned back money into your pockets. According to some estimates, residents of Minnesota's Sixth Congressional District will see an average increase of $21,282 in take-home pay over the next decade due to the recent changes made to our tax code.

Beginning in 2018, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act decreased taxpayer’s withholding. For information regarding this change and how it may affect you or your family, please check out IRS Publication 5307 for more information.

As economic opportunity and confidence continues to grow, I will continue to work on behalf of every Minnesotan to ensure they have a tax code that continues to work for them, not the other way around.

For answers to other specific questions, the IRS provides key online tools and resources. As always, if you need assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact my Otsego office at 763-241-6848 or my Washington D.C. office at 202-225-2331. It’s an important time in our country, and I look forward to watching our economy grow and our citizens prosper!
