Overwhelmed With Prior Year Unfiled Tax Returns?

While most Americans finish or have finished their current year taxes, others have stacks of unfiled tax returns from previous years. You may feel swamped with the pressures of work and within a blink of an eye, you wake up to find an IRS notice in the mailbox. Let’s face it, life gets busy. Nevertheless, you have forgotten about those prior year tax returns, but the IRS hasn’t. Here are some common questions for those taxpayers who are stuck in the mud with unfiled tax returns:

Where Is My State Tax Refund?

Check the status of your state tax refund online

For all our kvetching, the IRS is *usually* pretty good about sending out tax refunds in a timely manner. In other countries, Australia for example, it’s not uncommon to hear of people waiting 20 or even 30 weeks for their tax refunds.

But state tax refunds can be different from the IRS. They often arrive well behind your federal tax refund which, depending on your perspective, can constitute either be a pleasant surprise or an agonizing wait. If you haven’t file your state taxes yet, you can do so (along with your federal taxes) on PriorTax.

Here’s how long you can expect to wait for your state tax refund and how to check its status:

How to Get Prior Year State Tax Information

You can’t run from your past…even when it comes to taxes.

With federal taxes, we’re all, more or less, in the same boat. The IRS is a one stop shop for everyone; no matter where in the country you live. When we’re talking state tax returns, we each seem to be out to sea on our own one-man floats. States are given some leeway to construct a unique set of guidelines for resident and nonresident taxpayers.

For federal taxes, you can always contact one entity; the IRS. If you want to request prior year state tax information, you’ll need to contact that state specifically. We’ve put together a list for you including the following information for each state:

  • State revenue department telephone number
  • State revenue department address (for tax purposes)
  • State revenue department website link
  • Price of requested documentation (if provided)

How Long Does It Take for the New York State E-File to Process?

New York State says to expect your refund in 14-30 days, but many are experiencing delays

Once you’ve filed your federal and state returns, you begin the dreaded waiting game. The states tend to be a little slower than the IRS. So even after you get your federal refund, you could still be worrying about your money from the state.

New York has a slightly more sophisticated tax system than other states. However, it can still take a long time for your return to be processed and refund issued. Many taxpayers have unrealistic expectations. They expect NY to be as fast as the IRS.

What is the quickest way to get your tax refund?

The fastest way to get your refund is to e-file your return and request your refund via direct deposit. The Department of Taxation and Finance declares that these taxpayers can receive their refund in as little as 14 days. Most, however, will have to wait somewhere between 14 and 30 days. Note also that it is hardly uncommon for refunds to take even longer than that.

Any deviation from the e-file/direct deposit combination means that your refund will take even longer than this 14-30 day window. In addition to direct deposit, New York allows you to get your refund sent to you on a debit card or in the traditional form of a paper check. As both of these options involve sending a physical thing through the mail, they take a little longer, usually about 2-5 business days more. (more…)
