The tax filing season is rapidly coming to a close. Around 478-thousand North Dakota individual income tax returns are expected to be filed this season. The state tax department has already heard from 356-thousand North Dakotans. Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger says refunds are averaging around 200 dollars – down slightly from one year ago. Rauschenberger says collections have been strong as well.

Rauschenberger says 92-percent of returns have been e-filed. He says that percentage will likely come down as more complicated returns tend to come in at the end.

The tax commissioner adds if you expect to receive a refund it might take a few days longer than in the past as the department scans for fraudulent activity.

Rauschenberger says the department has saved over two million dollars in recent years.

“We are extending our hours on April 15 to be more accessible to taxpayers who may have last-minute filing questions,” Rauschenberger said. “Our individual income section is staffed with experts who can help.”
