Commissioner Brian Kroshus announced that income tax filers have until April 25, 2022 to file their state income tax return and pay the tax.
Kroshus has put in place a waiver of income tax penalty and interest for one week, allowing taxpayers until April 25 to file and pay, to provide relief to 2021 income tax filers impacted by state-wide blizzard conditions that began on April 12, 2022.
“We’re aware of the impacts facing many North Dakotans due to the extreme weather conditions,” stated Kroshus. “In response, we are providing a waiver, allowing taxpayers an extra week to file and pay their North Dakota income tax without fear of accruing penalty or interest charges. Given the magnitude of the storm, the waiver is appropriate and will hopefully provide a level of relief to some as the state slowly digs out.”
This waiver applies only to the North Dakota state income tax deadline. At this time, the federal deadline remains April 18, 2022. Taxpayers can file for an extension if additional time is needed.
Kroshus reminds that his staff is ready to assist by phone or email to help taxpayers with any issues and will be extending office hours until 7 p.m. on April 18, 2022. Taxpayers can visit the office on the eight floor of the Capitol or may call 701-328-1247 for assistance.
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.
