Minnesota taxpayers affected by this week's damaging snow and ice storms in southwestern Minnesota have more time to file their state taxes, the state ­Department of Revenue announced Friday.

Affected taxpayers have until next Friday to file and pay taxes without penalty.

For more information, ­taxpayers can call 651-556-3003 or 1-800-657-3909.

The extension applies to state taxes, not federal taxes.
