The marriage penalty has toggled in and out of existence in Minnesota — vanishing in 2003-04, returning, then vanishing again from 2006 to 2010 — depending on how healthy the state budget happened to be.

Meanwhile, the state Revenue Department has been sending out letters to Minnesota residents and businesses who may be caught by conformity issues.

“We hope that it’s fairly straightforward for taxpayers to crosswalk from the federal return to the state return,” said Deputy Revenue Commissioner Matt Massman. “But obviously, if [the two returns were identical], it would be easier, but we think we’ve done quite a bit to make it easier for taxpayers.”
