Some Automatic Taxpayer Refunds on the Way

Only those who filed an Indiana resident tax return for the 2020 tax year are eligible for both Automatic Taxpayer Refunds and will receive a payment in 2022. The Auditor of State’s Office (AOS) estimates it will take until mid-October to finish printing and mailing the 1.7 million additional refund checks generated by the refund.

Those eligible for only the $200 ATR will not receive a direct deposit or check. Although there were proposals that would have allowed eligible recipients to fill out a form to receive the second ATR as a direct payment, those bills did not pass. Instead, eligible taxpayers can claim the $200 ATR as a credit when filing their state taxes next year if:

  • They receive Social Security benefits this year; and
  • They are not claimed as a dependent on someone’s 2022 Indiana income tax return.

They will need to file a state tax return to claim the ATR as a credit even if they are not normally required to file a state tax return due to their income.

DOR will provide information on how to resolve Automatic Taxpayer Refund issues on our website on or around Nov. 1. You can subscribe to email updates and read more about Automatic Taxpayer Refunds though

DOR Offers
Secondary Review

Under Indiana Code 6-8.1-5-1.5, taxpayers may request a Secondary Review of Adjustment (SRA) if they have questions or disagree with an action taken by DOR resulting in an adjustment to a net operating loss, capital loss, credit, or other tax attribute, but does not result in an assessment or refund denial for any taxable year at the time of the adjustment. Taxpayers may also request an SRA if they have questions or disagree with an application denial such as, for example, non-profit status for sales and use tax purposes.

If DOR’s decision is eligible for a secondary review, information regarding the process will be included in the notice from DOR. The taxpayer has 60 days from the date of the DOR notice to submit the SRA request form along with a written explanation of why they believe DOR’s decision should be reviewed. Tax practitioners should have a POA authorization on file to submit an SRA request for their client.

DOR’s Legal Services department will review the SRA request and determine if the taxpayer should receive an administrative adjustment, a conference with DOR for further investigation, or deny the SRA request. Taxpayers will be notified of DOR’s decision by mail.

Any response provided by DOR to a request for a secondary review of adjustment or application denial will not be a final determination of DOR.

Your INTIME Access
May Be Expiring

When DOR began transitioning from INtax to INTIME, it became clear that INTIME gave users visibility to significantly more information than was allowed to be shared without a full POA. As a result, DOR sought a legislative change, IC 6-8.1-7-1(u), to provide some practitioners limited access to client account information on INTIME as a courtesy while we transitioned away from INtax. In accordance with that statute, that access will expire on Aug. 31, 2023.  

You will need to request ePOA for any customer currently listed as having “limited access” on your INTIME account before Sept. 1, 2023.  Once your temporary, limited access expires, you will no longer have access to client information in INTIME unless ePOA access has been granted.

INTIME access does not affect the ability to use the bulk filing process to file returns and send remittance for your clients.

Instructions for requesting ePOA access can be found at

Making Payments through INTIME

Estimated taxes are due Sept. 15. DOR discourages using personal bill pay services because neither the bank nor customer can include a payment voucher and information provided on the check’s memo line is not enough to ensure the payment is applied properly.  INTIME is the most efficient method to make estimated payments. More information on making a payment through INTIME is available in the INTIME User Guide for Individual Tax Customers.
