The North Dakota Office of State Tax Commissioner will be extending office hours until 8 p.m. today.
“We are extending our hours on April 15 to be more accessible to taxpayers who may have last-minute filing questions,” Rauschenberger said. “Our individual income section is staffed with experts who can help.”
Taxpayers may stop by the 16th floor of the North Dakota State Capitol Building for assistance with, or to drop off, their North Dakota individual income tax returns. The south door of the building will be accessible to taxpayers. Parking is available in front of the building or in the visitor parking lot, immediately east of the main capitol entrance.
Taxpayers who are unable to stop by in-person, may call the individual income tax staff at 701-328-1247.
Taxpayers who are unable to file by the April 15 deadline will need to file an application for an extension. An extension may be filed with the Internal Revenue Service by using Form 4868 Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. Extensions that are granted for federal returns are also recognized for North Dakota returns.
“Filing for an extension will give taxpayers an additional six months to file,” Rauschenberger said. “However, we remind individuals who owe taxes that they should make a payment by April 15 to avoid interest.”
Individuals needing to make individual income tax payments may do so online for free by going to www.nd.gov/tax/payment.
Taxpayers may check the status of their North Dakota individual income tax refunds online by using the Where’s My Refund? tool at www.nd.gov/tax/refund.
As of Sunday, more than 356,000 North Dakota individual income tax returns have been processed.
