You can check the status of your refund on Revenue OnlineThere is no need to login. ​After we have received and processed your return, we will provide you with an updated status as the refund moves through our system. It may take a few days for an updated status to appear. Please check back often to verify where your return/refund may be in our process. The information in Revenue Online is the same information available to our Call Center representatives. You can get the information without waiting on hold.

  1. Choose the option “Where is my Refund / Rebate?” under Quick Links.
  2. Enter your SSN and the refund amount you claimed on your current year income tax return. If you do not know the refund amount you claimed, you may either use a Letter ID number from a recent income tax correspondence from the Department, or you may request a letter with a Letter ID be sent to you to the mailing address we have on file for you. You will receive the Letter ID within 7-10 business days. For more information, see “What is a Letter ID?

Reminder: The Colorado Department of Revenue is emphasizing fraud detection and prevention. Taxpayers are warned that they could experience delays of as long as 60 days compared to previous years due to the Department's enhanced tax refund fraud detection efforts. While efforts to detect fraud cause refund processing to slow down, the Department is asking taxpayers for patience because it is better to be sure a refund is going to the correct party and not to data thieves who stand to benefit from stolen refunds.

    Also, see the Refund/Identity Verification webpage to learn how the Department takes precautionary measures to ensure taxpayer refunds are not diverted to identity thieves and how you can work with the Department to verify your refund.
