ND income tax extension deadline nears

BISMARCK -- Individual income taxpayers who filed for an extension are nearing their Oct. 15 deadline.

“We estimate that in 2018 approximately 35,000 North Dakota individual income taxpayers filed for an extension with the IRS, and nearly half of those have yet to file their North Dakota return,” Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger said.

Taxpayers who filed for an extension must have paid the tax owed by the April deadline. Those who did not pay in full will be charged interest on the unpaid balance. If a taxpayer does not file by the extension deadline, penalties will apply, the tax commissioner’s office said.

Taxpayers who were granted an extension may file their returns through Oct. 15. While electronic filing is encouraged, paper filers must have their return postmarked by Oct. 15, or they may drop it off at the Office of State Tax Commissioner between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Taxpayers may call 701-328-1247 with any questions about their state income tax return.

As of Oct. 8, over 458,000 North Dakota individual income tax returns have been processed.
