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

Note: We recommend you save the PDF document to your computer and fill out this saved version, instead of accessing the form directly through your Web browser. See How do I download PDF documents to my computer. The form is not available for use with any mobile devices.

This form is not compatible with Linux operating systems.

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.

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 submit your original federal Form W-2 to the Tax Department; keep it for your personal records.
