Tax Department Offers Advice for State Filers Affected by IRS Delay

BISMARCK, N.D. The Office of State Tax Commissioner today offered advice to North Dakota's individual income taxpayers regarding the IRS filing delay.

The IRS announced it would begin processing individual income tax returns this year on January 31st. The opening of the filing season is ten days later than the original IRS date of January 21st.

"The IRS will begin processing both electronic and paper returns on January 31," said Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger. "This means that there is no advantage to sending in paper returns before the date because the IRS will not be able to process them."

Taxpayers who use the services of a professional tax preparer or use software may still file electronically. However, according to the state Tax Department, software developers that support North Dakota's tax forms will hold the state returns until the federal return is accepted.

"The best option for taxpayers remains with e-file," said Rauschenberger. "As always, e-file is the fastest method to file. And this year, with the delay and the potential back-log at the federal level, taxpayers who use e-file will experience faster results."

For more information on the filing date, visit the IRS web site at www.irs.gov or contact the IRS at 800.829.1040. For information about North Dakota individual income tax, visit the state Tax Department web site at www.nd.gov/tax or call 701.328.1247.
