State of Minnesota Personal Income Tax Extensions

E-file an IRS personal tax extension with TaxExtension.com

General Instructions

Minnesota individual income tax returns are due by the 15th day of the 4th month following the close of the tax year. For calendar year taxpayers, this date is April 15. If you cannot file on time, you can get a Minnesota tax extension. A Minnesota personal extension will give you 6 more months to file your return, moving the deadline to October 15 (for calendar year filers).

Remember, a tax extension only gives you more time to file, not more time to pay. There is no extension for paying your Minnesota tax. That means your Minnesota income tax must be fully paid by the original deadline (April 15) to avoid penalties and interest.

NOTE: There is no late filing penalty as long as your Minnesota return is filed within 6 months of the original due date. So if you owe zero tax with your return, you will have an automatic filing extension until October 15.

If you can’t file your return by the regular due date (April 15 for most people), you are allowed six months (or until Oct. 15) before a late-filing penalty is charged. You don’t have to submit a separate form to request an extension. However, this extension is for filing your return only. To avoid late fees and interest, you must pay any tax owed by the regular due date and file your return by Oct. 15. You can pay your state taxes electronically via Minnesota e-Services for Individuals: www.revenue.state.mn.us/individuals/eServices
