Tax Commissioner Provides Relief for 2020 Income Tax Files Impacted by COVID-19

Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger announced that income tax filers have until July 15, 2020 to file their income tax return and pay the tax. Taxpayers who can file prior to July 15th, do not need to take any additional steps if they are able to file by that date. 

Rauschenberger has put in place a waiver of income tax penalty and interest for 90 days, allowing taxpayers until July 15 to file and pay, to provide relief to 2020 income tax filers impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

“We continue to urge taxpayers to e-file and choose direct deposit or electronic payment to help improve the accuracy, security and timeliness of return and refund processing, or chose to mail their return as soon as they are able,” Rauschenberger said. “However, there are many directly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and this waiver allows all taxpayers 90 days of relief without fear of penalty or interest. It is the right thing to do and helps lift all who are facing financial hardships during the COVID-19 situation.”

The IRS recently announced it has also extended the federal income tax filing deadline to July 15, 2020. 

Guidance for North Dakota Taxpayers During COVID-19 Precautions can be found at www.nd.gov/tax.
 
Rauschenberger reminds that his staff is ready to assist by phone or email to help taxpayers with any issues. As a North Dakota taxpayer, you have the ability to request additional time if you believe you will be unable to file a return or pay any other taxes in a timely manner because of a COVID-19 related situation, please contact the Office of State Tax Commissioner.
 
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 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).
