Update: Severe weather and flood affected taxpayers get more time to file and pay their taxes
Governor Dayton extends state of emergency period another 30 days
ST. PAUL —  Taxpayers in Minnesota who were affected by the severe weather and flooding will get help if the recent storms prevented them from filing their returns or paying their taxes on time, the Minnesota Department of Revenue announced today.
Governor Dayton recently extended the time period for the state of emergency to July 22, 2014.   The department will forgive penalties and interest for taxpayers located in affected areas who have Minnesota tax returns or payments due between June 11 and July 22, 2014.
This only applies to Minnesota taxes. This does not apply to any federal taxes.
If you are in the affected area and receive a tax bill, please contact us at 651-556-3003 or
For other questions call the Minnesota Department of Revenue Disaster Relief Hotline at 651-556-3016 or toll free (outside the metro only) 1-800-657-3606.
