Indiana has finished sending out all taxpayer refund payments to eligible Hoosiers.

If you filed an Indiana tax return last year, you’re supposed to receive direct deposits or a paper check that total $325, or $650 for joint filers. All those deposits and checks have now been sent out.

Still, the state says to wait until Nov. 1 to contact the Indiana Department of Revenue if you haven’t received your payment. That allows the state time to process returned mail.

If you’ve received a check addressed to a deceased family member, you need to mail in a form and a copy of the death certificate to the State Auditor’s office. That form is called "Distributee's Affidavit for Disposition of Estates SF# 49377."

 

 

If your check has a printer error – like, if it’s too blurry – there’s also a form to be mailed in to the Auditor’s office. That form is called "Affidavit for Lost or Not Received Warrant SF#42850."

Both those forms are available online at IN.gov/auditor/forms and both must be notarized. The address they must be mailed to is:

Indiana Auditor of State

200 West Washington Street

Room 240

Indianapolis, IN 46204

And if you’ve received the $650 payment meant for joint filers but are now divorced, you send the check back to the Department of Revenue along with a written request to split the amount. That address:

Indiana Department of Revenue

Attn: Non-Responsible Spouse

PO Box 7202

Indianapolis, IN 46207
