Income Tax Refund Information
- Online Inquiry
- Phone Inquiry: 1-800-323-4400 (toll-free within NJ, NY, PA, DE, and MD) or 609-826-4400 (anywhere). Touch-tone phones only. This service is available 7 days a week (hours may vary). You will need the Social Security Number that was listed first on your return and the amount of the refund requested when you call.
These automated systems can tell you if and when your refund was mailed and when you should receive it. The systems also allow you to begin the procedure to trace a lost refund check. If you filed your resident income tax return electronically (or filed a form that was prepared and printed using approved tax software) and requested direct deposit for your refund, the systems can tell you the date it was deposited into your bank account. (Note: The Division of Taxation is not responsible for a lost refund if you entered the wrong account information for a direct deposit. You must contact your financial institution for assistance in such cases.)
