ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Despite the Minnesota government shutdown, you still have to pay your state taxes. But don’t expect to receive any tax refunds for now.

The Minnesota Department of Revenue said Friday it will continue to process tax payments during the shutdown. All tax laws and deadlines are still in effect.

But with no authorized funding in place, agency functions not deemed critical by the courts are suspended. That means no tax refunds will be processed or issued at this time. And the Revenue Department will have no one to help taxpayers by phone or email until normal operations resume.

The department’s electronic services are being maintained, so taxpayers can continue paying their taxes and filing their returns during the shutdown.
