PFD filing deadline is March 31st
March 22, 2016
If you are an Alaskan resident who has not yet filed a 2016 PFD application, go to www.pfd.alaska.gov to submit your online application or search for a paper application distribution site near you. Online applications must be completed before midnight, March 31st, 2016, Alaska Time. Paper applications must be received or postmarked by March 31st.
The PFD Division’s online system will take care of most PFD filing needs. All Alaskans who have internet access are encouraged to utilize www.pfd.alaska.gov to file. The online submission process is faster than a paper application, gives you a digital record of your submission, and can be tracked easily. This year, the average time to online file is 7 minutes. The Division of Revenue would like to remind you that signature pages (e-signatures or by paper) do not have to be submitted by the March 31st application deadline. At this time, if you are submitting a paper signature, the Division recommends that you submit those immediately after April 1st to avoid long lines at the office locations.
Sara Race, PFD Division Director, encourages you to consider the voluntary contribution options available when you file online. Pick.Click.Give. is a great way to share a portion of your dividend with an Alaskan charitable organization that is important to you. Check out their special promotion this year to Double Your Dividend at www.pickclickgive.org. You can also designate half of a dividend to the University of Alaska College Savings Plan, and help a child in your life save for their future education, as well as getting entered into their $25,000 Scholarship Account Giveaway. Find out more at www.uacollegesavings.com.
In 2016, eligible applicants will be paid on Thursday, October 6th, by either direct deposit or check. The 2016 dividend amount will be announced in late September. You can check your application status at any time by going to the PFD website and clicking on the blue myPFD button.
