In some cases where there is an obvious math or clerical error on your return, the DOR will issue a Notice of Change in Tax (see graphic below) You will find it on the stub of your check and it will list the reason the amount of refund check is different from what you requested on your income tax return. DOR mailed over 80,000 of these notices last tax year alerting taxpayers that their refund was either greater or lower than expected because of errors on line items and other simple mistakes.

Taxpayers can challenge the refund adjustment by writing to the address listed on the Notice or by calling Customer Service.
