Don't Forget to File!

Posted: Updated:

 

Are you ready for Monday?  In case you've forgotten, the tax man cometh, so if you haven't filed your taxes, you may want to file an extension.

In North Dakota, it's been a busy tax season.  Tax Commissioner Cory Fong says 30-thousand more people in North Dakota filed last year than the year before.  That's thanks to the energy boom and the influx of workers.  He says even if people are not State residents, but are earning money here -- they too must file.  Thanks to e-filing, tax season is faster and more efficient -- even when the busy time hits.

"A lot more returns will hit the system, we'll get more paper in.  That tend to start getting a little bit longer because we have more returns hitting the system, but still, even a weeks turn-around time for a refund, that's not very long," says Fong.

The Tax Commission urges taxpayers to remember, an extension to "file" your taxes, does not mean an extension to "pay" your taxes.  The Tax Department will be open late on April 15th -- until 9:00 p.m. -- to accommodate taxpayers who want to personally drop-off their returns and to assist with last minute questions.
