Hoosier Tax Tips – Part Four
INDIANAPOLIS (April 7, 2014) – The Indiana Department of Revenue is here to assist the approximately 900,000 Indiana taxpayers who have not filed their annual tax returns. Individuals must file and pay before the April 15, 2014 individual income tax filing deadline.
Assistance for Hoosier Taxpayers
The department’s customer service division is ready to assist taxpayers with last-minute help or questions at (317) 232-2240.
- The department receives an average of 1,400 phone calls per day about individual tax questions.
- The average wait time for the department’s customer service section is 2 minutes.
- Calls are completed in an average of 4 minutes.
Additionally, Indiana has special filing considerations for military personnel. Military personnel and families can visit www.in.gov/dor/4734.htm and read Information Bulletin #27 for information about extensions of time to file, taxability of income, combat zone issues, deductions and more.
Filing and Payment Options
INfreefile, the department’s free online filing program, is still available for qualified taxpayers to electronically file both federal and state taxes at http://www.freefile.dor.in.gov/.
Taxpayers can pay tax owed online through the department’s secure ePay site at http://www.epay.in.gov/. Taxpayers who can’t pay the full amount owed should pay as much as possible to minimize penalty and interest charges.
If taxpayers receive a bill, a payment plan can be established using INtax Pay at http://www.intaxpay.in.gov/. Taxpayers will qualify for a bill payment plan if they owe more than $100 and can pay at least 20 percent down.
This is the fourth and final Hoosier Tax Tips before the April 15, 2014 individual income tax filing deadline.
