"Where's My Refund?" Update
Wednesday, February 15, 2017 (6437 reads)


The Department of Revenue is working as quickly as possible to process income tax refunds. However, please be advised:

  • If you filed electronically and chose direct deposit, you can expect your refund within 12 business days of the return acceptance.
  • If you filed a paper return, you can expect your refund within 6-8 weeks of the date you filed.

Some tax returns need extra review for accuracy and to protect taxpayers from fraud and identity theft and therefore extra processing time may be necessary.

You may check the status of your refund on AZTaxes.gov, Where’s My Refund. If you have not received your refund after the referenced time, please contact Arizona Department of Revenue staff at 602-255-3381 or toll-free from area codes 928 and 520, 1-800-352-4090.

As a reminder, the filing deadline to submit 2016 tax returns is Tuesday, April 18, 2017.

Updated 1099-G Statement from the Arizona Department of Revenue
Friday, February 03, 2017 (2535 reads)


The Arizona Department of Revenue wants to advise taxpayers impacted by the recent 1099-G matter that corrected forms were mailed out on Monday, February 6th.

Any taxpayer who received an incorrect 1099-G from the Arizona Department of Revenue in January should destroy the form. The correct form has the word CORRECTED located in the upper right side of the form in red.

This matter does not impact anyone who did not itemize deductions on the federal return and did not receive an Arizona state income tax refund in 2016 for tax year 2015 or earlier.

The 1099-G serves as a confirmation of the previous year’s state tax refund. However, Arizonans can still file their federal and state tax returns if they have access to their previous year’s return, which contains the same refund information as the 1099-G.

For updates and further information, taxpayers are encouraged to go to: www.azdor.gov or email the department at: 1099G@azdor.gov
