Tax Commissioner Brian Kroshus reminds individual income taxpayers who filed for an extension that their deadline is approaching.
“The individual income tax filing extension deadline is Monday, October 17,” Kroshus said. “This year, taxpayers were required to pay tax owed by the April 18 deadline but could have filed for an extension to file their tax return.”
Taxpayers who were granted a federal extension may file their state returns without penalty through October 17. While electronic filing is encouraged, paper filers must have their return postmarked by October 17, or they may drop it off between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Office of State Tax Commissioner in the North Dakota State Capitol.
Taxpayers who did not pay in full by April 18 are charged interest on the unpaid balance. Penalties will apply if a taxpayer does not file by the October 17 extension deadline.
For questions regarding a state income tax return or to schedule an appointment for assistance in filing a return, taxpayers may call 701-328-1247.
