In Minnesota, eligible renters who submit the tax rebate form receive a property tax refund of 17 percent of the rent they paid for the previous year, up to $2,030 for the year, explains the Minnesota Department of Revenue. Eligibility for the refund depends on the renters' household income, their number of dependents, and the amount of property tax they paid through rent on their primary residences. Renters submit a certificate or affidavit of rent paid with the form to determine their refund amounts.
