- Tax Announcement 2015-02
July 28, 2015
Tax Law Changes from the 2015 Regular Legislative Session
This Announcement lists and summarizes the Acts, enacted as part of the State of Hawaii’s 2015 Legislative Session, amending or affecting the State tax law.
- Update: Tax Refunds
May 6, 2015
At this time, please allow us up to 16 weeks from your filing date to process your refund. The longer processing time is due to the high volume of returns filed by the April 20th deadline, as well as additional scrutiny necessary to stop tax fraud that could cost the State millions of dollars. Interest may be paid if your refund is not issued by July 20, 2015. Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to expedite the processing of all tax returns and ask for the public’s continued patience.
- Update: Taxpayer Services Call Center
April 15, 2015
Although the Department continues to receive a high volume of telephone calls as we approach the April 20th filing deadline, the intermittent telephone problems have been resolved. We thank the public for its patience.
- Free Tax Return Preparation and Free Electronic Filing
