Act 115 Refund

The 2022 Hawaii State Legislature passed S.B. 514 which provides a refund for resident taxpayers who file their 2021 individual tax return (Form N-11) on or before December 31, 2022. Governor David Y. Ige approved this measure on June 22, 2022 and it became Act 115, Session Laws of Hawaii 2022. The amount of the refund is $100 or $300 per exemption (person) depending on the taxpayer’s federal adjusted gross income and filing status. The Department of Taxation (Department) is still in the process of reviewing the measure and does not have any specific details to share at this time. Resident taxpayers who have already filed their tax return do not need to take any further action to receive their refund. The Department anticipates that it will be able to begin processing refunds in late August. Please see Tax Announcement 2022-03 for more details.
