BISMARCK (AP) - North Dakota Tax Commissioner Cory Fong says his office will waive penalties and interest for people who missed Monday's filing deadline because of the winter storm.
Fong says taxpayers are encouraged to file their returns in a reasonable time. He also planned to have his office at the state Capitol open until 9 p.m. Monday to accommodate last-minute filers who had questions or planned to drop off their returns in person.
State Capitol offices weren't opening until noon Monday, however, because of the Sunday snowstorm. And Sen. John Hoeven says the Internal Revenue Service has agreed to extend the deadline for filing tax returns in North Dakota, and waive penalties for late returns, because of the storm.
