Filing Past Year Tax Returns
July 27, 2017
Are you worried about not filing a past year tax return? Stop worrying and take action.
There are many reasons why people do not file tax returns. Some think it isn’t necessary because they did not earn any - or much - income during the past year. For others, they filed with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and did not realize they needed to file separately with the Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR). Whatever the reason, it is never too late to bring your tax filing status current.
The department has a voluntary disclosure agreement (VDA) program. This program is for businesses who discover they’ve had tax exposure in Indiana, but haven’t filed. For more information or to find out how to participate, visit the VDA program webpage.
You can go to the Indiana State Prior Year Tax Forms webpage and select the tax form for the year you missed and have yet to file. Complete and return the tax form.
It is possible the department will take action first and mail a notification letter. In that case, respond by providing the information requested. If you believe you were contacted in error, you will be given the opportunity to file an appeal.
If you are uncertain as to whether or not you filed for a certain year, call the department Mon. – Fri., 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. EST:
• Individual Income Tax: (317) 232-2240
• Voluntary Disclosure Agreement Program: (317) 233-6036
Our customer service representatives want to help bring you into compliance and provide you with peace of mind. Remember, if you file a federal return you must also file a state return.
