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 New York State resident income tax return, use our enhanced fill-in Form IT-201 with 2D barcodes.
- 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. The form is not available for use with any mobile devices.
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.

Form IT-2, Summary of W-2 Statements, is also enhanced with 2D barcodes. If you file a New York State income tax return and you received federal Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, you must complete fill-in 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.
