Gambling Tax Payment Grace Period
The Minnesota Department of Revenue is offering a Lawful Gambling Tax grace period, upon request, for March payments originally due on Monday, April 20, 2020 if needed due to COVID-19. If an extension is requested, organizations will have until May 20, 2020 to make their payment.
Organizations that would like to request a grace period for their March payment, due in April, must do so by April 27, 2020. Organizations can request this grace period by email, fax, or secure message in e-Services. The request should include the organization’s name, address, federal and state tax ID numbers, license number, and the month for which they are requesting.
Organizations that previously requested a grace period for their February payment, due in March, now have until May 20, 2020 to make that payment.
Organizations should still file their returns by the original due date, if possible. For taxpayers who cannot do so, we will allow a filing grace period if requested.
We ask that you pay your tax liability on the original due date unless you are financially unable to make the payments. If needed, you may ask us to cancel or reduce penalties, additional tax, and interest for late filing or payment if you have a reasonable cause such as being negatively affected by the COVID-19 emergency. You may request this relief after we notify you of a penalty. See Abatement Information for Businesses.
