With the tax season now in full swing, there are several resources at your fingertips to make filing your taxes hassle-free.

Enhanced Website

Earlier this year, we launched a new DOR homepage, making it faster now to find exactly what you need to file and pay your state taxes or check on the status of your refund.

Fastest Way to File

The quickest way to file and receive your refund is e-filing. So far, more than 97 percent of this year’s returns have been e-filed.

Take advantage of DOR’s e-filing resource Webfile for Income — it’s secure, easy to use, and free! The average turnaround time for an e-filed refund is two weeks. File on paper and it can take up to six weeks on average to receive your refund.

File for Free

Commercial software companies offer free tax-filing services for both state and federal taxes for those who qualify.

Where’s My Refund?

New this season, an easy and fast way to check the status of your refund: visit our Check Your Refund application to learn when to expect your refund.

No need to register, just enter your name, social security number, and refund information into our system and get an update on your refund 24/7.

Need to Catch Up on Back Taxes?
