The balance due must be paid in full with your return. You may pay the balance due using a debit or credit card or electronic check. North Dakota contracts with a national electronic payment service to provide this option. A fee is charged for this service, none of which goes to the State of North Dakota. You will be informed about the fee during the transaction, at which point you may continue or cancel the transaction. For more information and to make an electronic payment, go to our website at www.nd.gov/tax.
If you choose to pay by check or money order, make it payable to “ND State Tax Commissioner,” and write the last four digits of your social security number and “2XXX Form ND-1” on your check or money order. A check must be drawn on a U.S. or Canadian bank, be in U.S. dollars, and use a standard 9-digit routing number. A check drawn on a foreign bank (except one in Canada) cannot be accepted.
