The DOR has already processed over 1.4 million individual tax returns this season—processing over 100 per minute. As the 2019 individual tax season reaches its halfway point with a filing deadline of April 15, The DOR has been busy issuing over 930,000 tax refunds with over 87 percent being issued within 14 days or less. Those who file electronically are receiving refunds even quicker with an average processing time of fewer than 11 days. Individuals filing by paper are receiving refunds in an average of 20 days—22 days sooner than the 2018 tax season. To find the status of a refund DOR offers several options: Go online.
