The Families First Project aims to make Minnesota the best state to raise a family! Progress is already underway. Our initiative helped enact a permanent, nation-leading, child tax credit.

By combining the Child Tax Credit and the Working Family Credit with the education tax credit and subtraction offered to parents to help lower some of their children's schooling expenses, we can make raising a family more manageable in today's economy. These tax benefits can significantly help families by increasing their tax return or lowering the amount of taxes owed. Unfortunately, 10-15 percent of eligible families have never taken advantage of these benefits.

Explore the information below to learn about the Child Tax Credit and additional tax benefits available to families in Minnesota to ensure you and your family take advantage of these cost-saving programs.
