How to check the status of your state tax return
There aren’t many things in life that can make you miss the IRS but dealing with your state tax authority is definitely one of them. As byzantine as the federal tax code is, the IRS actually does a pretty good job of providing useful information on its website.
The same cannot be said of the forty-one tax authorities (nine lucky states have no income tax) responsible for administering their state’s income tax.
Trying to get any information out of a state tax website can be a frustrating experience. Most look like relics from the 1990s and they definitely did not have user-friendliness in mind when they were designed.
And yet you still need to know where the heck your state tax refund is. To make your life a little easier we’ve compiled a list of where to check your state tax refund for every state that has an income tax. Click on the link and it should take your right to the necessary page of your state’s tax website.
