FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE SEPTEMBER 29, 2022
Auditor of State Confirms All Automatic Taxpayer Refund Checks Are Printed & Mailed
STATEHOUSE – More than 1.5 million automatic taxpayer refund (ATR) checks have been printed and
mailed, confirmed State Auditor Tera Klutz, CPA today.
“We successfully completed printing on September 21 and sent the last batch of automatic taxpayer
refund checks to the postal service on September 22,” stated Auditor Klutz. “Most Hoosiers who
filed a 2020 tax return in 2021, should have received their automatic taxpayer refund via direct
deposit or mailed check by now.”
Klutz continued, “While most eligible recipients have received their refunds, we are aware that
many need further assistance to claim it. Due to the checks being issued from the 2020 Indiana tax
return some recipients have passed away or moved and we are working to get those checks reissued to
the proper name and address.”
Do you need a refund check reissued?
• If an individual received a payment who has since passed away, the living spouse or executor
needs to file a Distributee's Affidavit for Disposition of Estates SF# 49377 with the Auditor of State, and
include a copy of the Death Certificate.
• If an individual received a check that could not be deposited due to blurriness or printer
error, the recipient needs to file an Affidavit for Lost or Not Received Warrant SF#42850 with the
Auditor of State.
Completed and notarized forms can be mailed to the Indiana Auditor of State at 200 West Washington Street, Room 240, Indianapolis, IN 46204. Feel free to contact us directly at
[email protected] with any questions regarding this process.
Do you need a refund check split? Hoosiers who received a joint check of $650 made out to both
spouses who filed their 2020 individual income taxes jointly, but who have since divorced and need
the check separated and reissued should mail the original check along with a written request to
divide the refund to:
Indiana Department of Revenue
Attn: Non-Responsible Spouse
PO Box 7202
Indianapolis, IN 46207
Did you qualify for the automatic taxpayer refund, but you still have not received a direct deposit
or mailed check? You are encouraged to contact the Indiana Department of Revenue directly after
November 1 to allow time for returned mail to process.
