Where Can I Check my State Tax Refund Status and Filing Information?

3 comments

[Updated for 2015-2016 Tax Year] There is a lot of focus around this time of the year on folk’s federal IRS tax return, but just as many people need to worry about one or more state tax returns. Every state varies with their local tax rules and refund processing timelines and I thought I would provide a consolidated list of links for the different states tax department websites where you can get all the state related tax and refund information. Most online tax software covers state regulations so you should be covered when filing your federal return through one of these providers, but for some of the more complicated returns the state’s tax website is a useful reference source.

State Refund Status

Also if you are wondering where you state refund is, then click on the links to the respective state tax websites below to get your state refund status. However you should wait 24 to 48 hrs after filing your federal and state return before trying to determine your state refund status since federal and state tax systems take a while to pass information between each other.  You will generally need your social security number, mailing address. and refund amount shown on your tax return to be able to get your refund status information. See this article for checking your federal tax refund status.

State Tax Refund Processing Times

Processing times for state tax refunds vary by state, but as a guideline and assuming no issues with your tax return filing then you should get your return 7-14 days if you e-filed your return. For paper returns,  it can take 6 to 12 weeks from the date you mailed your return to get your refund. So e-filing is clearly the way to go if you want your refund faster.

I also did direct deposit which I thought would be faster . but when I go to the irs where’s my refund tool it tells me to wait 24-48 hours until I recieve a conformation email that My return has been accepted almost as if they still haven t received anything And I know i transmitted it .
