• You were a full-year or part-year resident of Minnesota in 2021 (if you are a member of the military, see below)

• You meet the income requirements in the table below based on your filing status and number of qualifying children

• You have investment income less than $3,650 (if you have investment income greater than $3,650, complete step 2 in the instructions for line 27 of Form 1040 to determine if you are eligible to claim the Working Family Credit and use $3,650 as the limitation instead of $10,000)

• You are not a dependent of another person
