Gambling Tax Payment Grace Period
The Minnesota Department of Revenue is offering an extension for Lawful Gambling Tax payments, upon request, for April payments originally due on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 if needed due to COVID-19. If an extension is requested, organizations will have until June 22, 2020 to make their payment.
Organizations that would like to request an extension must do so by May 27, 2020. Organizations can request the extension 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 an extension.
Organizations that previously requested an extension for their February and March payments, originally due in March and April, now have until June 22, 2020 to make those payments.
Organizations should still file their returns by the original due date if possible. For taxpayers who cannot do so, we will allow a filing extension if requested.
We ask that you pay your tax liability on the original due date unless you are financially unable to make the payments. In addition, 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.
