Where is My Refund? 

The Department generally processes electronically filed returns claiming a refund within two to four weeks. A paper return received in the Department early in the tax season takes six to eight weeks. If you file a paper return after March 15, your refund may not arrive for up to 12 weeks. When inquiring about a refund, allow sufficient time for the Department to process the refund claim.

The status of a refund is available electronically.  A Social Security Number and the amount of the refund due are required to check on the status.

If it is necessary to ask about a refund check, please allow enough time for the refund to be processed before calling (505) 827-0827. Keep a copy of the tax return available when checking on the refund status online or by telephone.
