DOR Reports Processing Over 100 Tax Returns per Minute This Tax Season

The Indiana Department of Revenue has already processed more than 1.4 million individual tax returns this season, collectively processing over 100 per minute!

Officials report that as the 2019 individual tax season inches past its halfway point with a filing deadline of April 15th, the DOR has been busy issuing over 930,000 tax refunds.

Over 87 percent of those refunds are being issued within 14 days or less. Those who file electronically are receiving refunds even faster with an average processing time of fewer than 11 days.

Meanwhile, those who file by paper are receiving refunds in an average of 20 days. While that may not be as quickly as those who filed electronically, it’s still 22 days sooner than the 2018 tax season.

The Department of Revenue offers a variety of ways to find the status of refund. You can call their automated line at 317-233-4018 or call or visit a district office. Those offices and phone lines are generally open from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Individuals can also check information by using the DOR’s online refund status interactive tool. You can access the tool on the page entitled “Check the Status of Your Refund Online or by Phone” on
