2017 Extension Payments – myBBDPass

If you owe taxes, you will need to make a payment by 4/17/18 to avoid a late payment penalty.   We can extend the due date of a return, but the extension does not extend the date to pay.  If you think you might owe for your 2017 taxes, please refer to  your 2017 tax review prepared by BBD.

To make a payment for Federal or MN taxes, please follow the instructions below:

FEDERAL EXTENSION PAYMENTS:

Please print the coupon and write a personal check for the amount listed on Line #7 of this form.  The payments should be postmarked and mailed by 4/17/18.  Please use a PERSONAL check for this payment.

The address for the payment is:   Internal Revenue Service, P.O. Box 802503, Cincinnati, OH 45280-2503

MINNESOTA EXTENSION PAYMENTS:

Please print the coupon and write a personal check for the amount listed on this form.  The payments should be postmarked and mailed by 4/17/18.  Please use a PERSONAL check for this payment.

The address to send the payment is: Minnesota Revenue, P.O. Box 64058, St. Paul, MN  55164-0058


For amounts to pay, please refer to your 2017 tax review prepared by BBD.  To avoid any penalties, you would need to make a tax payment by the 4/17/18 deadline.  At this point, we will be filing an extension for your 2017 personal tax return.  However, if you owe tax, you would need to have it paid in by 4/17/18 to avoid any late payment penalty.
