The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance today reminded New York taxpayers waiting for their refund to use the Check your Refund tool on the Tax Department website: It’s the fastest and most convenient way to know when to expect your refund.

The Tax Department's refund tracker is available whenever you are, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It provides the same information available to department phone representatives.

To receive an email about when your refund will be issued, visit our website at to sign up for a refund alert. You can subscribe at the bottom of our home page. In addition to refund information, you can also sign up to receive alerts about new publications and guidance, tax law changes, and press releases.
