Minnesota 2013: Child Tax Credit
Certain Minnesota taxpayers, who filed a joint return and have a child born in 2013, may be eligible for a child care credit even if they did not participate in a pre-tax dependent care assistance program. They also may be eligible if they did not have actual child care expenses or if only one spouse has earned income.
Certain Minnesota customers, who had a dependent child/children born in 2013, may have filed an incorrect Minnesota tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
