Long-delayed Indiana tax rebate checks will be larger
Article from WFYI.org
About 1.7 million tax rebate checks from Indiana’s big state budget surplus that have been delayed for months will be larger when they finally start hitting mailboxes. State lawmakers last week approved a second round of rebates amounting to $200 per taxpayer, on top of $125 payments that were triggered last summer by surging tax collections.
DOR: Automatic Taxpayer Refund
Information from Indiana Department of Revenue
If you were eligible for the initial $125 ATR, you will receive a one-time payment of $200 for the additional ATR. DOR provided information for almost 1.5 million taxpayers to the state’s banking institution on Aug. 16. Direct deposits could arrive as early as Aug. 19. There are several factors that affect the time it takes for this process that are outside DOR’s control. We expect most ATR direct deposits to arrive in Hoosiers’ bank accounts on or around Aug. 24.
Taxpayer Refund Going to Deceased Persons
If you have a relative who passed away in 2021 and they have received the Indiana Automatic Taxpayer Refund Checks ($325), they may claim this refund but will need to have the check reissued in another living taxpayer’s name. To have the check reissued in another name, you will need to file one of two affidavits., the Widow’s and Distributee’s Affidavit or the Affidavit for Lost or Not Received Warrant.
Once you fill out these forms, you will want to mail them to the Auditor of State’s Office.
Address for Auditor of State’s Office:
State House, 200 W Washington St #240
Indianapolis, IN 46204-2793
