North Dakota Income Tax Forms In The Mail

BISMARCK, N.D. – According to Tax Commissioner Cory Fong, about 110,000 North Dakota Individual Income Tax Booklets were mailed to North Dakota taxpayers recently.

“The booklets are mailed to taxpayers who prepared their own 2005 paper return,” said Fong. The Tax Department does not mail a paper booklet to taxpayers who filed electronically or paid a tax preparer to prepare and file their tax return last year.

In addition to filing the traditional paper return, taxpayers may file their individual income tax return electronically. The booklet provides information about three methods of electronic filing: through a tax practitioner, using purchased software, or through an Internet on-line service. Fong indicated the electronic filing provides taxpayers with the fastest and most accurate method of filing.

“Our focus in the Tax Department is to provide North Dakota taxpayers any refund due to them as promptly and efficiently as possible,” said Fong. “E-file incorporates a question and answer “interview” format to help taxpayers quickly and accurately complete both the federal and state income tax returns at the same time.”

Taxpayers receive their refunds faster when they are processed electronically rather than those filed by paper. Refunds for taxpayers who use e-file and direct deposit are generally processed within a week. Refunds for manually processed paper returns can take up to six weeks to process.

Taxpayers who do not receive a booklet but would like one mailed to them should contact the Tax Department at 701.328.3450 or visit the department’s web site at http://www.nd.gov/tax/. Many libraries, post offices, financial institutions, and tax practitioners throughout the state also have the booklets on hand.

Fong encouraged taxpayers to ask their tax preparer about e-filing. Taxpayers can learn more information about e-filing as well as access other tax forms and instructions by visiting the Tax Department’s web site at http://www.nd.gov/tax/.
