FONG REMINDS INDIVIDUALS TO FILE BY OCTOBER 15

BISMARCK, N.D. – Tax Commissioner Cory Fong today reminded taxpayers that October 15 is the deadline for thousands of individual taxpayers who requested an extension to file their 2009 tax returns.

“October 15 is an important deadline,” said Fong. And we want to be sure that taxpayers who received an extension to file are aware that they need to have their return filed by Friday.”

Over the next week, the Tax Department expects to receive about 9,000 returns from taxpayers who requested an extension to file their returns. So far this year the Tax Department has received nearly 240,000 individual income tax returns through e-file. Paper returns received by the Tax Department continue to decline, with less than 112,000 individual income tax returns filed on paper during 2010.

Fong encourages taxpayers, including those who received an extension, to e-file because it is faster and more accurate than filing a paper return.

“E-file is dominating the scene as the preferred method of filing an individual income tax return,” said Fong. “Taxpayers enjoy the convenience of e-file and have found it to be more accurate and faster than filing a paper return.”

Taxpayers can access tax forms, publications, and other information about e-file and Free File on the Tax Department’s web site at www.nd.gov/tax or by calling 701.328.7088. The Tax Department hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
