General Instructions

Minnesota Department of Revenue does not require you to request additional time to file your return. Minnesota grants an automatic six-month extension of time to file until October 15, 2014.

An extension to file your return is not an extension of time to pay your taxes.

If You Owe

If you pay at least 90% of your total tax by April 15, 2014, and file your Form M1 with payment of the remaining tax due no later than October 15, you will not be charged a late payment penalty. If you fail to pay your tax as required, a 4% late payment penalty will be assessed on the tax not paid by the original due date. Interest will be assessed on any unpaid tax and penalties from the original due date until paid in full.

Pay Online

Pay your taxes online at Minnesota Revenue. Click “Make a payment” on the e-Services menu. You’ll need your Social Security number and banking information. When paying electronically, you must use an account that is not associated with any foreign banks.

You can also pay your taxes online at Official Payments Corporation. Visa, MasterCard, Discover Network, and American Express credit and debit cards, and other forms of payment, such as Bill Me Later® are accepted. To make a debit card payment you can use a MasterCard or Visa Debit Card or any debit card with Nyce, Pulse or Star logos.

Penalty and Interest Charges on Tax Owed:

There is no late filing penalty as long as your return is filed within six months of the due date, which is October 15, 2014 for most individuals. Those who do not pay their current year tax liability on or before April 15, 2014 will be charged interest on the unpaid balance and a late payment penalty.

If You Do Not Owe

If you owe zero taxes or are expecting a refund from Minnesota, there is nothing to be filed at this time, an extension is automatically granted until October 15, 2014 for the filing of your 2013 tax return.
