Minnesota offers residents the option for IRS online tax filing, in addition to individual state returns. This is a great advantage especially for residents of this state to be able to file taxes from the comfort of home rather than fighting the elements. There is no need to input any credit card information because there are no up-front fees to file. Any applicable fees can be deducted from their federal refund. Electronic filing has become increasingly popular for its accuracy and convenience. Getting your refund weeks earlier is also a nice benefit.
