Income tax return processing will start on January 30

Due to the delayed opening of the federal electronic income tax processing system, we will not start processing New York State income tax returns until January 30.  We will begin to process paper and electronically filed returns on January 30.

Keep in mind that the fastest way to get your refund is to file electronically (e-file) and choose direct deposit or debit card to receive your New York State tax refund.

Also, due to our transition to a new personal income tax returns processing vendor, there may be delays in processing paper returns for tax year 2011 and earlier.
