NORTH DAKOTA STATE TAX DEPARTMENTGet started resolving your state tax liabilities using the information below. If you still need help, reach out to us using the contact form to the right of this page.
The North Dakota Taxpayer Bill of Rights is a decent place to begin.
ND State Tax Commissioner Monthly Payment Plan
Don’t wait to contact the Accounts Receivable Section (collections) at (701) 328-1244 to set up an installment agreement. Wait too long, and the Sheriff’s office may get involved.
If you’re proactive in contacting the State, here’s what you can expect.
- Expect between 6 months to 2 years to pay back the taxes, unless your compliance history is bad.
- You shouldn’t have to make a down payment to get your Installment Agreement, unless you owe a large amount or have a history of non-compliance.
- You shouldn’t have to submit financial information, unless you need additional time to pay or can’t pay as much monthly as the Office of the State Tax Commissioner requires.
State of North Dakota Offer in Compromise
No such luck. North Dakota does not have an Offer in Compromise or other back tax settlement program.
Not too much going on in North Dakota as far as penalty abatement. The ND Taxpayer Bill of Rights states:
You have the right to request a waiver of penalty and interest charges. Part or all of these charges may be waived for “good cause”.
We suggest sending your request for penalty abatement to the State in writing.
