New York State tax refund

If you expect a refund from your New York (NY) personal income tax return, you can check the status of your tax refund one week after you e-file. If you filed a paper income tax return, you’ll need to wait three weeks before checking its status.

E-filing your return is the quickest way to file your income tax return. Plus, you’ll receive an email confirmation that your return was received and accepted by New York State.

Direct deposit is the quickest way to receive your NY state tax refund. When you register with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, you will receive an email notifying you when your direct deposit is sent. A paper check takes an additional week or two to process.

Was your refund less than you expected?

Owing money to any New York state agency can result in your income tax refund being seized. If you’re behind on child support or have unpaid restitution or court fees, your state tax refund can be used to pay those debts.

Your tax refund may also be less than you expected because you made an error on your tax return. The Department of Taxation will notify you of the changes made to your return. Review the information provided to ensure you agree with the changes made.

Live in New Jersey but work in New York?

If you live in New Jersey but work in New York, you are required to file a Form IT-203, Nonresident and Part-Year Resident Income Tax Return if you want a refund of all New York income tax withheld from your pay. This will avoid double taxation of your income by both New York and New Jersey.
