I want to..


When should I get my refund?
How soon taxpayers receive their refund depends on how and when they file their return.

  • Most electronic filers can expect their refunds in about seven to 14 business days.

  • Paper filers have a longer wait depending on when they file. The table below shows the approximate time it takes to receive a refund based on the month a return is filed.

    If the department does not send out a refund within a specified period of time, interest will be paid on taxpayers' refund checks. However, these timelines apply only if a return is complete, correct, received by the April 15th deadline, and not under a review.
