E-File Services

Income Tax

E-file is a cooperative tax filing program with the IRS that makes it possible for taxpayers to file both federal and state personal and business income tax returns electronically. It is also the fastest and most accurate way to file a return, and taxpayers can expect the following benefits:

  • Individual taxpayers receive their refund faster. An individual taxpayer will receive their refund in a couple of weeks after ADOR accepts the e-filed return. If the individual taxpayer chooses to direct deposit the refund, they can receive the refund in as little as five days after ADOR accepts the e-filed return.

  • Taxpayers make fewer errors. The online service automatically checks a return and corrects any math errors found. The error rate on e-filed returns is less than ½ percent. If an error is found, the Arizona Department of Revenue (ADOR) will notify the taxpayer or preparer immediately.

  • Taxpayers get an acknowledgement of receipt from both the IRS and ADOR via the service, so they will know their returns have been received and accepted.

  • Online filing is secure. The information is encrypted and securely transmitted to the IRS and ADOR.

  • Electronic individual, corporate, and partnership payments can be made alongside their return. If paying, ensure you make the payment through  AZTaxes.gov and a few dates prior to the due date to account for weekends and holidays.

Electronical filed individual income taxes are timely by midnight on April 15 (or due date for the tax year).
