Tax Department Provides Filing Relief for Taxpayers Impacted By Souris River Flooding

BISMARCK, N.D. North Dakota Tax Commissioner Cory Fong announced today that the North Dakota Tax Department has granted an extension to file the North Dakota business tax returns to individuals and businesses affected by the recent Souris River flooding that has occurred in Ward, McHenry, and Renville Counties, including the communities of Burlington, Minot, Minot AFB, Sawyer, Surrey, Towner, and Velva.

"Extensive flooding has damaged many homes and businesses along the Souris River," said Fong. "The Tax Department is ready to help those residents by offering an extension of time to file and pay North Dakota business taxes that would have been due this month."

Ward, McHenry, and Renville County taxpayers affected by the flood have until August 15, 2011 to file returns and pay any North Dakota taxes that would have been due by June 30, 2011. No penalty or interest will be charged on any tax due on state tax returns filed and paid by the extended due date.

"The Tax Department will continue to monitor the conditions along the Souris River and throughout the state and we will authorize additional extensions as needed," said Fong.

Individuals and businesses with questions or concerns about state filing deadlines, or need assistance with filing state tax returns, or have other tax-related questions are encouraged to visit the Office of State Tax Commissioner's web site at www.nd.gov/tax or call the Tax Department at 877.328.7088 or 701.328.7088.
