The Indiana Department of Revenue started the non-filer program in 2013 to identify individuals who are not filing taxes with the State of Indiana, but should be.
DOR works with various agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), to ensure taxpayers are in compliance.
Benefits of non-filer program
- Counties receive the correct amount of funding, as a county will not receive any of the withholding taxes until a tax return is filed.
- All taxes owed are allocated to the proper sources.
- Indiana’s taxpayers benefit from increased funds for vital services.
What happens if I’m a non-filer?
Once you’re identified as a non-filer in Indiana, DOR will contact you by letter. The letter will encourage customers to:
- file the missing return for the periods noted or
- contact DOR to discuss why a return was not filed.
You will have 30 days to respond.
