Minnesota – Currently issuing revised tax rates for 2022 due to recently passed legislation. The legislation reduces certain factors in the rate calculation resulting in a 0.479% to 1.8852% reduction for most employers. Most employers have already submitted payment for the 1st quarter 2022 prior to the rate revisions and will be overpaid. Per the state, it will take a “few” months to process any refunds so employers are advised to use any credits for the 2nd quarter 2022. Should an employer decide to apply for a refund, it can only be done through the employer account online. Please feel free to reach out to ValeU Group if you need further assistance.
