Those affected by recent flooding across the state are getting a little more time to file and pay their taxes.
 The announcement, made by the Minnesota Department of Revenue applies to individuals and businesses that have tax returns or payments due from June 9 to July 31 of 2018. Officials say it only applies to Minnesota taxes, not federal taxes.
This latest effort to help flood victims comes after Governor Mark Dayton recently declared a state of emergency and asked state agencies to provide assistance and support to affected communities. Qualified counties are: Aitkin, Becker, Beltrami, Blue Earth, Brown, Carlton, Cass, Clearwater, Cottonwood, Faribault, Fillmore, Freeborn, Jackson, Kittson, Lake, Lyon, Mahnomen, Martin, Mille Lacs, Mower, Murray, Nicollet, Nobles, Pine, Pipestone, Polk, Red Lake, Redwood, Renville, Rock, Sibley, Stearns, Stevens, St. Louis, Waseca, and Watonwan counties, and the Red Lake Nation.
