Tax Commissioner Advises Taxpayers on 2020 Tax Season

BISMARCK, N.D. – Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger has announced that the 2020 individual income tax season has begun, coinciding with the January 27 date that the IRS begins to process returns.

“We are excited to begin processing North Dakota individual income tax returns this week,” Rauschenberger said. “The start of the tax season varies each year. However, like many states, North Dakota opens filing season in conjunction with the IRS.”

Rauschenberger added that his office is prepared for another substantial tax season. In 2019, the Office of State Tax Commissioner processed over 478,000 North Dakota individual income tax returns. Approximately 87 percent of these taxpayers e-filed. 

“We continue to encourage taxpayers to e-file, and choose direct deposit or electronic payment to help improve the accuracy, security and timeliness of return and refund processing,” Rauschenberger said. “Taxpayers should also verify their address and bank account information to avoid errors.”

There are a number of free tools and services offered to North Dakotans depending on income and age. Many North Dakotans are eligible to e-file their taxes for free, depending on income and age. By answering a few questions online using the ND Free File tool at www.nd.gov/tax/NDFreeFile, taxpayers can easily see if they qualify to file their federal and state returns for free with certain tax software companies. Taxpayers may also utilize one of many free tax preparation sites available around the state. These sites are run by either the AARP or the IRS, and most will be opening at the beginning of February. Details may be found at www.nd.gov/tax/freetaxprep.

Taxpayers may also e-file by purchasing tax preparation software, by working with a tax professional, or by using the Office of State Tax Commissioner’s stand-alone free ND Fillable Forms option (for ND return only). 

Rauschenberger continues to encourage taxpayers to file early to help prevent fraudsters from claiming their refund. Taxpayers may use the Where’s My Refund? tool found at www.nd.gov/tax/refund to help track the status of their state refund.

North Dakota tax booklets, forms and payment vouchers may be found on the Office of State Tax Commissioner’s website at www.nd.gov/tax/forms.  IRS forms may be found at www.irs.gov or by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM
(1-800-829-3676).

The due date to file and pay 2019 individual income tax returns is Wednesday, April 15 this year.
