Indiana first sent out $125 per-taxpayer direct deposit payments for its automatic taxpayer refund in May. Lawmakers added an additional $200 during this summer’s special session.

Hoosiers who haven’t received Indiana’s automatic taxpayer refund and inflation relief payments – but think they should have – should contact the state.

Indiana first sent out $125 per-taxpayer direct deposit payments for its automatic taxpayer refund in May. Lawmakers added an additional $200 during this summer’s special session. All direct deposits and paper checks for those payments should now have been received.

People who filed an income tax return in Indiana last year are eligible for both the $125 and $200 amounts. Hoosiers on Social Security who didn’t file a return can receive the $200 by filing a tax return next year.

If you’re eligible for the payments but haven’t gotten them, the Department of Revenue wants you to contact it using INTIME, the agency’s online portal. There, you can send the department a message and they will investigate the issue and contact you with further information.

State officials are urging people not to call the Department of Revenue, if possible. They say that will ensure phone lines are available for people with other issues.
