DOR's American Rescue Plan Guidance

On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act, 2021 (Rescue Plan). DOR is analyzing the impact of the new law in conjunction with the Governor Holcomb Administration and General Assembly leaders and will provide updated guidance over the coming weeks.

Updated Injured Spouse Information

Taxpayers who believe they are eligible for injured spouse relief can now request that DOR not apply the full amount of a tax refund to their spouse’s existing tax liability or a pending offset on Line 5, Schedule 7 of their joint tax return. 

Making a claim as an injured spouse does not guarantee that DOR will not divert the tax refund. DOR will investigate the matter and allocate any tax refund due accordingly. Customers with pending offsets must contact the requesting agency/organization for assistance. DOR will honor the requesting agency’s decision in processing any refund due.

Customers who selected the box in error do not need to take further action. For more information, visit DOR’s new Non- or Partially-Responsible Spouse/Injured Spouse Information webpage.
