If you would like to view the changes to the law for yourself, please reference Minnesota Laws 2008 Chapter 366, Article 6, section 26.

Making false statements on this form is against the law.

Minnesota Statutes, Section 609.41 states that giving false information in order to avoid or reduce their tax obligations can result in a fine of up to $3,000 and/or up to one year in prison.
