You wouldn’t know it from the commercials you see on TV, but not everyone receives a tax refund.
Regardless of whether you will receive a refund, make sure you file your tax return by Tuesday, April 18, 2017.
Pay your taxes in full no later than the April 18 deadline to avoid paying penalties and interest. The Department of Revenue’s electronic tax payment service, ePay, allows individuals to pay taxes owed to the state 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or e-check*.
If you cannot pay your taxes in full by the due date, follow these tips to minimize the impact on your finances.
Generally, the minimum amount of tax due to establish a payment plan through INtax Pay is $100, with 20 percent down.
For more information, on payment plans please contact us at (317) 232-2165.
* If paying by credit card, a fee will be charged by the credit card processor based on the amount paid. If paying by electronic check, a fee of $1 will be charged by the bank.

Have you ever submitted your tax return only to discover an error? If so, you probably filed an amended tax return. Tax returns filed correctly the first time cost less to process, and refunds are issued in less time.
Look out for these common errors to ensure your tax return is correct the first time around.
Electronically filing your tax return makes it easier to avoid mistakes. E-filed returns have only a two percent error rate, while paper-filed returns have a 20 percent error rate. See if you qualify to file your federal and state taxes for free at www.freefile.dor.in.gov.
