Since the April 18, 2011, tax filing due date, the Indiana Department of Revenue has received approximately 500,000 tax returns and paper checks. That’s a lot of paper documents that is all manually processed. And it takes some time to get all those checks sent to the bank. In fact, it could take up to June 1, 2011, before the Indiana Department of Revenue anticipates getting all those returns processed and checks sent to the bank.
So if you are one of those who mailed your state tax return and payment around the April 18 due date, you probably won’t see that cancelled check until you get your June statement from the bank.
To avoid waiting for your paper check to clear the bank next year, consider filing and paying electronically. You can do this right up to the last hour, and you can always use our free online state tax filing program at www.ifile.in.gov Once you’ve filed and paid electronically, you’ll have the confidence of knowing the Indiana Department of Revenue has received your tax return and payment.
If your check has not cleared by June 1 and would like to speak with a bilingual representative at the Indiana Department of Revenue, call (317) 232-2240 (press 2 for Spanish) from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can also visit the Spanish website at www.impuestos.in.gov/ for more information or submit questions about your bill via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
