Minnesota Revenue Extends Filing Time For Storm Victims


The Minnesota Department of Revenue “…has announced that taxpayers filing monthly returns for sales and use tax or other business related taxes have additional time to file or pay taxes without incurring penalties or interest.”

For payments due between June 20 and August 30, 2012, no late payment or late filing penalties or interest will be assessed for cities in the following ZIP codes located in St. Louis and Carleton Counties:

  • 55701
  • 55707
  • 55718
  • 55720
  • 55726
  • 55757
  • 55767
  • 55797
  • 55798
  • 55801
  • 55802
  • 55803

  • 55810
  • 55811
  • 55812
  • 55814

  • 55816

The Minnesota Department of Revenue indicates that other areas could be added “…at a later time.”

Sales tax returns due during that time period must be filed on or before August 30, 2012 to qualify for waived penalties and interest.

Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans said, “Governor Dayton has pledged his full support to helping these areas recover from this disaster. Canceling penalties and interest is a way for the department to help taxpayers that have much more to worry about right now than a looming tax deadline.”
