BISMARCK — North Dakota Tax Commissioner Brian Kroshus announced Thursday, April 14, that tax filers will have an extra week to return and pay their state income taxes.
Citing the disruptive blizzard that has blanketed much of the state in snow, Kroshus put a waiver on all income tax penalties and interest through after Monday, April 25.
"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," Kroshus said in a news release.
The waiver only applies to the state income tax deadline, and filers must still send in their federal income tax returns by Monday, April 18, or request an extension to avoid penalties.
Kroshus' office will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on April 18 to help residents file their individual income tax returns before the end of the Tax Day deadline. The office's individual income tax staff is reachable at 701-328-1247.
