Tax extension deadline looming

BISMARCK, N.D. - If you filed for an extension on your taxes this year, the deadline is quickly approaching.

October 16th is the last day to send in your return. According to North Dakota's Tax Commissioner, between 40,000 to 50,000 people filed for an extension. But they should have paid in already.

"You should have actually paid what you believe you were going to owe so if you didn't there would actually be interest that accumulates every month if you did not pay,” said Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger said. “But if you didn't pay, now would be the time to do it, too.”

He says one of the main things to remember is to make sure your personal information is correct, because errors cause delays in getting the return processed.
