Individuals awaiting a refund can check the status by visiting the “Where’s My Refund” link available on AZTaxes.gov. Tax return and refund processing times vary and depend on how the taxpayer filed (e-file or paper) and when he or she filed.
Taxpayers who file early in the tax season will have their returns processed much faster than those individuals who file closer to the due date. In addition, e-filed returns process faster than paper returns. For paper filed returns, taxpayers should allow 8 weeks from the date filed before calling to check on the status of a return.
After the 8-week timeline, taxpayers can inquire about their returns by calling (602) 255-3381, or, if calling from area codes 520 or 928, they can call toll-free to (800) 352-4090. Callers must be prepared to provide their social security number, zip code, filing status and the exact amount of their refund reported on their returns.
