There are so many factors that will determine your residency in Minnesota. One of them is the 183-day rule. You can be a taxpayer who resides in another state, but still considered as Minnesota resident for income tax purposes if you spend at least 183 days in Minnesota or if you (your spouse)own(s), rent, or occupy an abode (a living unit suitable for year-round use, that is equipped with its own cooking and bathing facilities) in Minnesota. If these two conditions apply, the taxpayer is considered a Minnesota resident for as many days as the second condition applies; if the second condition is applied for the entire year, the taxpayer is considered a Minnesota resident for the full year. You can also be considered a Minnesota resident if you own a property (mailing address, homestead status, amount of time spent in Minnesota) in Minnesota. Financial data is also applicable in determining your residency; for instance, location of bank accounts, where taxpayer qualifies for unemployment benefits, state where prior resident tax returns were filed, state where wages are earned. These are few factors out of many that can determine your residency in Minnesota.
