MN Department of Revenue: Minnesota tax brackets for 2022

Minnesota Department of Revenue
Submitted

The Minnesota Department of Revenue announced the adjusted 2022 individual income tax brackets. For tax year 2022, the state’s individual income tax brackets will change by 3.115 percent from tax year 2021. This annual adjustment will prevent taxpayers from paying taxes at a higher rate solely because of inflationary changes in their income.                                                                                                             

Indexing for inflation of individual income tax brackets is required by law and first began in 1979. The brackets are adjusted annually by an inflation factor, rounded to the nearest $10, based on the change in the U.S. Chained Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers. The married separate brackets are half the married joint amount after adjusting for inflation. The adjustment does not change the Minnesota tax rate that applies to each income bracket.

The brackets apply to tax year 2022. Taxpayers who make quarterly payments of estimated tax should use the following rate schedule to determine their payments, which are due starting in April 2022.
