Tax Commissioner Cory Fong says the 2013 North Dakota Income Tax season is one for the record books.
"We had a record number of returns filed," said Fong. "This year, almost 400,000 were filed before the deadline."
85 percent of those were filed electronically. And Fong says that doesn't count returns that will come in under the extension deadline, Oct. 15th.
Fong says his office issued 231,000 refunds, worth about $55 million. That averaged $240. He says those numbers were down slightly from last year.
