Enhanced Form IT-201, Resident Income Tax Return

Enhanced paper filing with a fill-in form

Electronic filing is the fastest, safest way to file—but if you must file a paper Resident Income Tax Return, use our enhanced fill-in Form IT-201 with 2D barcodes.

Benefits include:

  • no more handwriting—type your entries directly into our form
  • automatic calculation of your refund or tax due amount—the form does the math
  • a unique 2D barcode printed on every page that securely links your return information to your account
  • fewer errors and faster processing of your return

All taxpayers should save a copy of their return for their files. You can either print a copy of the return or save the return on your computer.

Note: the enhanced forms are not available for use with any mobile devices including phones, tablets, or iPads.  Enhanced forms are not available for use with Linux operating systems.

Did you know?

If you file an income tax return and you received federal Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, you must also complete Form IT-2 and submit it with your return.


Do not make any handwritten entries on this form. Handwritten entries may cause delays and miscalculations.

Do not submit your original federal Form W-2 to the Tax Department; keep it for your personal records.

Not in a hurry?

Print standard paper Form IT-201Resident Income Tax Return (instructions), and complete it by hand.
