Recently, some taxpayers have received balance due notices although they had submitted a payment via paper check close to the April 20th deadline. Please disregard this notice if you have paid your outstanding balance in full.
If you did send in a duplicate income tax payment, our system will automatically generate a refund for you. You do not need to do anything more for the refund to be processed. Please note, however, that it could take approximately 2-3 weeks for the refund check to be processed.
