  • When is the Occupation Tax return due?Back to top

    ​The regular due date for filing your annual Occupation Tax return, Form M30, is May 1 of the following year. If you need more time to prepare your return, there is an automatic seven-month filing extension. You are not required to submit a form to receive this extension. In addition, if the IRS grants an extension of time to file your federal return that is longer than Minnesota’s seven-month extension, your state filing due date is extended to the federal due date.
    This extension is for filing only. There is no extension to pay. You must pay your total tax due by the regular May 1 due date to avoid penalties and interest. See Penalty Information for Businesses.
