File by August 13, 2021

Your 2020 Form M1PR should be mailed, delivered, or electronically filed with the department by August 13, 2021. You will not receive a refund if your return is filed or the postmark date is after August 13, 2021.

When to Expect Your Refund

If the department receives your properly completed return and all enclosures are correct and complete, you can expect your refund:

  • by mid-August if you are a renter or mobile home owner and you file by June 15, or within 60 days after you file, whichever is later.
  • by the end of September if you are a homeowner and you file by August 1, or within 60 days after you file, whichever is later.

If your return is incomplete or necessary information is not enclosed, your refund will be delayed or your return will be sent back to you.

You may receive your refund up to 30 days earlier than the dates listed above if you:

  • electronically file your return by May 15 (if a renter) or July 1 (if a homeowner or mobile home owner); and
  • chose the direct deposit option; and
  • filed Form M1PR last year; and
  • received a CRP(s) from your landlord (if a renter).
