State offers tax filing delay for those in flood-affected areas

The Minnesota Department of Revenue announced today that a tax filing extension has been expanded to include business taxpayers affected by flooding in northwestern Minnesota. Affected taxpayers have until May 15 to file tax returns and make payments due between March 20 and May 15, 2009.

Taxpayers in Clay, Kittson, Marshall, Norman, Polk, Traverse and Wilkin counties may request that any late-filing or late-payment penalties, additional tax charges and interest be cancelled for certain taxes, fees or deposits collected by the Minnesota Department of Revenue.

This applies to individuals or businesses whose tax return or payment was due from March 20, 2009 through May 15, 2009, but was delayed because of flooding.
