Senator Xiong Celebrates New and Expanded Tax Savings for 2024, Providing Relief to Individuals and Families 

ST. PAUL, Minn. — In 2023, DFL legislators passed a historic tax bill, which delivers more than $3 billion in savings benefiting Minnesotans as they file this year’s tax forms. By prioritizing financial relief for Minnesotans, our tax saving measures include a broad range of benefits for families with children, renters, homeowners, Social Security recipients, retirees earning public pensions, and more Minnesotans. 

Senator Tou Xiong (DFL-Maplewood) issued the following statement as state tax filing season gets underway:  

“Our historic 2023 tax bill will bring much-needed financial relief to my district,” said Senator Xiong. “We prioritized families by introducing a refundable child tax credit of up to $1,750 which will reduce childhood poverty. We eliminated state income tax on social security benefits for households earning less than $100,000, provided property tax relief, relief for renters, and relief for families with children in K-12 schools to assist them with paying for education-related expenses. These are just several of the many tax benefits Minnesota taxpayers will see when filing taxes this season. I’m proud to have prioritized financial relief for the families in my district and will continue to keep this as a top priority during the 2024 legislative session.”
