Whether you are an individual taxpayer who still has questions about your state taxes that were due in April, or a business taxpayer who has questions about submitting your state sales and withholding taxes, the Indiana Department of Revenue is here to help. Many state tax issues and questions can be addressed either by telephone, e-mail or via the Department’s website. For example, you can check the status of your state tax refund, file your sales and withholding taxes, pay your bill, set up a payment plan, or change your mailing address online 24 hours a day.
However, if you do need to visit one of the 12 Indiana Department of Revenue district offices in person, follow the tips below to come prepared:
Have your Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number with you. If you’re representing a business, make sure to bring the business’s Taxpayer Identification and location number.
Bring a current government-issued photo ID, such as your driver’s license, state ID or passport.
Bring all correspondence and other paperwork associated with your issue, including any bill you may have received, copy of the tax return(s) in question, missing W-2 forms, etc.
If you’re dealing with a payment discrepancy, bring a copy (front and back) of the cancelled check in question. This way the Department of Revenue will be able to determine to which account that payment was applied.
Be prepared to leave your contact phone number and current address, in case the Department of Revenue needs to follow up.
If you’re just not sure what to do or bring with you, you can always call before making the trip. The Indiana Department of Revenue will answer any questions you may have before your make a visit.
You can speak with a bilingual representative from the Indiana Department of Revenue by calling (317) 232-2240 (press 2 for Spanish) from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can also visit the Department’s Spanish website at www.impuestos.in.gov or you can submit questions via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
