Tax Department Redesigns Web Site
BISMARCK --- Tax Commissioner Rick Clayburgh announced today that the
Office of State Tax Commissioner redesigned its’ Web site, www.nd.gov/tax.
The newly launched site is designed to improve its function for all
customers by providing more direct access to the Tax Department’s
features and services.
Commissioner Clayburgh said, "It’s been five years since the last redesign. That site served us well, but it was showing its’ age. Our thinking has always been to keep the site usable and make it easy for taxpayers, policymakers, government leaders, and anyone else who needs information about North Dakota’s taxes to find what they’re looking for."
The redesign gave the Tax Department an opportunity to make better use of technology to help reduce agency spending on printing and postage. Visitors to www.nd.gov/tax can sign up to receive electronic notification for various tax department newsletters.
“This new newsletter feature will allow subscribers to receive their publication as soon as it is published on our Web site rather than wait several days for it through traditional mail delivery,” said Clayburgh. “And, it will help the Tax Department reduce costs associated with printing and mailing thousands of newsletters.”
The Tax Department’s Web site continues to provide useful information such as tax forms and instructions, brochures, and statistical reports.
Clayburgh said, “The newly launched site represents the ongoing goal for the department to continue to improve the structure, presentation and function of the Tax Department resources and materials available on the redesigned Web site.”
The Office of State Tax Commissioner Web site address is www.nd.gov/tax.
