Income Tax Due Dates
COVID-19 Penalty Relief
We granted grace periods for these taxes with due dates in March, April, or May:
• 2019 Individual Income Tax
• Sales and Use Tax
• MinnesotaCare taxes
• Gambling Tax
• Occupation Tax
These grace periods have ended. We will not charge penalty or interest on payments for these taxes as long as we received them by the end date. For details, see Our Response to COVID-19.
You may also ask us to cancel or reduce penalties and interest for late filing or payment if you have a reasonable cause or are negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. See Penalty Abatement for Individuals or Penalty Abatement for Businesses.
Most people must file their 2019 Minnesota tax return by July 15, 2020. The Minnesota Department of Revenue must receive your return electronically – or it must be delivered or postmarked – by that date. If you owe tax, you must pay by July 15, even if you file your return later.
What if I file by fiscal year?
Your return and payment are due on the 15th day of the fourth month after your fiscal year ends. If the 15th falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, we must receive your return and payment by the next business day.
What if I cannot complete and file my return on time?
To avoid a late filing penalty, you must file your return by Oct. 15, 2020. Do not send an incomplete return.
To avoid other penalties and interest, you must pay your tax by the due date. If you do not know your total tax due, you may estimate the amount and pay it by the due date. To see your payments options and make a payment, see Make a Payment.
