Individual Income Taxes

Have questions about filing your individual income taxes? DOR has answers to frequently asked questions about individual income taxes.

1099-G & Automatic Taxpayer Refund Update

DOR is providing supplemental 1099-G information to the IRS on behalf of Hoosier taxpayers to ensure Automatic Taxpayer Refund (ATR) amounts are not taxed on federal returns. More information available in the 1099-G FAQ.

Do I need to file IN-W?

If you have one or more wage statements and file your taxes using paper forms—opposed to a recommended electronic filing method—you must include Schedule IN-W yourself, alongside all other required forms and schedules.

If you have one or more wage statements (such as a W-2 or 1099) and electronically file your taxes, all of your wage statements will be included on Schedule IN-W automatically if using a DOR-certified tax preparer.

Important Notices

Automatic Taxpayer Refund (ATR) Information

DOR continues to coordinate with the Governor’s Office, State Comptroller, and others to provide eligible Hoosiers the opportunity to claim the 2022 Additional Automatic Taxpayer Refund (ATR). To receive the $200 refundable tax credit, qualified taxpayers must file a 2022 Indiana resident tax return no later than Dec. 31, 2023. That means some Hoosiers who do not normally file a tax return due to their income will need to file a 2022 state tax return to claim the ATR as a credit. Instead of a direct payment, the $200 ATR tax credit will be received as a refund or applied toward any additional taxes owed. Additional ATR information is available on our website .

Be mindful of potential scams

Scam Warning

The Auditor of State’s Office and Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) reminds Hoosiers to be mindful of potential scams regarding tax refunds. You should ignore any texts, emails, or calls regarding these refunds, especially messages containing links or requesting personal or financial information such as Social Security or bank account numbers.

More information is available on our Tax Scams webpage.
