Bismarck, N.D. – The North Dakota Office of State Tax Commissioner will extend office hours until 7 p.m. CDT on Monday, April 18, which is the tax filing deadline. Taxpayer assistance will be available in person and by phone. Tax Day for individuals is April 18, as Emancipation Day is a federal holiday recognized on April 15 this year.
“We are extending our hours on April 18 to better serve taxpayers who have last minute questions about filing,” Commissioner Brian Kroshus stated. “The experts in our individual income tax section are here to help.”
Taxpayers may visit the eighth floor of the North Dakota State Capitol for assistance with, or to drop off, their North Dakota individual income taxes. The south door of the building is accessible to taxpayers. Parking is available in the visitor parking lot, immediately east of the main south Capitol entrance.
Taxpayers who would like to call the office for assistance may call the individual income tax staff at 701-328-1247.
“If taxpayers are unable to file by the April 18 deadline, they need to file for an extension prior to the deadline,” said Kroshus. “However, we remind individuals who owe taxes that they should make a payment by April 18 to avoid penalty and interest.”
Individuals needing to make a payment may do so online for free by going to www.tax.nd.gov/payment. An extension may be filed with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by using Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, which can be found at www.irs.gov. Extensions that are granted for federal returns are also recognized for North Dakota returns.
Kroshus continues to encourage taxpayers to e-file and choose direct deposit or electronic payment to help improve the accuracy, security, and timeliness of return and refund processing. He reminds e-filers to verify their address and bank information. Paper-filers are reminded to enclose a complete copy of their federal return, any W-2(s), 1099’s, or other documents with North Dakota withholding and to sign their return.
As of April 7, 2022, more than 285,000 North Dakota individual income tax returns have been processed.
