Fong: Use Where’s My Refund to Track Refund Status
BISMARCK, N.D. – Tax Commissioner Cory Fong today reminded taxpayers who are anticipating a refund to use the Tax Department online tool, Where’s My Refund, to find out the status of their refund.
“Taxpayers who are eager to receive their refund can track the processing of their individual income tax refund through the “Where’s My Refund” online system,” said Fong.
Taxpayers who access the tracking system, will need to enter their Social Security Number, filing status, and the amount of their anticipated refund. Once that information is entered the taxpayer will learn:
- If their return was received;
- If their return is being processed; or
- The date their refund was issued.
Fong said, “The system is a convenient online tool for taxpayers who want to find accurate and current information on their individual income tax refund from the comfort of their own home.”
So far, the Tax Department has processed over 241,000 individual income tax returns, compared to about 227,000 returns at this time in 2009. About 161,000 refunds have been issued so far this year, compared to about 153,000 last year.
To access “Where’s My Refund?” or for other tax-related information, visit the Tax Department’s web site at www.nd.gov/tax or follow the Tax Department on facebook.
