You are correct.  Minnesota will not actually tax your husband's income, but they do factor it in.  What Minnesota does is calculate how much tax you would have on your return if all of your income were taxable in Minnesota (including your husband's), and then taxes the percentage of the income actually earned there.  Since you file a joint Federal return, Minnesota requires you to file a joint state return as well, even though your husband has no income there.

Of course, you do receive a credit on your Wisconsin return for the taxes you pay to Minnesota on your income.  This way you are not double-taxed.
