Can I electronically file my North Dakota tax return?

This program allows you to electronically file both your federal individual income tax return and North Dakota individual income tax return at the same time. To electronically file your North Dakota return, you must file it with your federal return. Your tax information is keyed into a computer and sent to the Internal Revenue Service, which then sends the state portion to North Dakota. You can use one of three options to electronically file.

Option 1: Ask your tax preparer
