Snowbound ND taxpayers get break from IRS

U.S. Sen. John Hoeven says the Internal Revenue Service has agreed to extend the deadline for filing tax returns in North Dakota, and waive penalties for late returns.

BISMARCK — U.S. Sen. John Hoeven says the Internal Revenue Service has agreed to extend the deadline for filing tax returns in North Dakota, and waive penalties for late returns.

Midnight Monday is the deadline to file. But residents across the state are digging out from a record-breaking snowstorm.

The IRS says people who can't meet the deadline due to the storm still must file "within a reasonable time," after transportation problems and power outages have been resolved.
