ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - People waiting for the go-ahead to file their Minnesota tax returns after late changes to state law can now move forward.

State Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans said Wednesday that state systems, paper forms and popular filing software have been updated to accommodate new breaks that affect one in 10 filers. State officials initially urged residents to wait until Thursday to file their taxes.

Appearing with Gov. Mark Dayton, Frans said his department has completed necessary system revisions to make sure 300,000 people who qualify for the $49 million in tax breaks get their cut.

People who had filed earlier will have their returns automatically reviewed for additional refunds. The state agency will alert those filers of extra steps they may have to take, but notification won't happen before April 15.
