School Supplies Purchases Can Qualify For Tax Refunds

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Back-to-school time can mean bigger tax refunds for parents.

The Minnesota Department of Revenue is telling parents to save receipts from buying school supplies as many purchases qualify for tax credits and refunds.

Things like paper, pens, notebooks and text books can be applied. There are also breaks for things like renting musical instruments and after school tutoring.
