alertAgencies prepare for a possible shutdown

The Legislature has yet to pass a new state operating budget, and agencies are preparing for a possible shutdown of service. All Department of Revenue offices will be closed beginning July 3, 2017, and will remain closed until a new state operating budget is enacted.

Most Revenue services will also be temporarily suspended including the Business Licensing Service and all DOR front counter operations. Any meetings or workshops scheduled during the shutdown will be cancelled. Staff will not be available to respond to phone calls, emails or public record requests until operations resume.

Taxes still due on time

The Department will continue to accept tax returns and payments electronically and by U.S. mail. Please note your taxes are due by your regular tax return due date regardless of the government shutdown.

We apologize for this inconvenience.
