Minnesota: Tax Extension for Winter Storm Victims
- Apr 16, 2013 | Gail Cole
The Department of Revenue has announced that "taxpayers in southern Minnesota who were affected by the recent winter storm will get extra time to file Minnesota returns and pay Minnesota taxes." This extension does not apply to federal taxes.
On April 9, a crippling ice storm struck much of southwest Minnesota. Heavy snows fell there and elsewhere in the state for several days. Storms have affected transportation and power, so much so that Governor Mark Dayton (D) has declared a state of emergency for the southern portion of the state.
The extension applies to both individual and business taxpayers in southern Minnesota whose ability to submit tax returns and payments due between April 9 and April 18 has been hampered by the severe spring/winter storms. Taxes must be filed and paid by April 19, 2013.
Taxpayers are directed to call the Department of Revenue at 651.556.3003 or 1.800.657.3909 with questions.
