Waiting for your Arizona state tax refund can take a little while. So it will take some patience.

But there’s more to the story than that. In this article, we will share with you how to get more information on your tax refund, where you can check for updates, and what may be causing the delays (if there are any). 

You’ll also find information about the Arizona state tax rates for individuals.

What Can Cause a Delay In Your AZ Tax Refund

If you think you should have your Arizona state tax refund, but it has not arrived yet, it is possible there may be some delays with your refund. So what causes a delay?

It could be any one of several reasons that could result in a delay in your Arizona state tax refunds. Some of the more common reasons include the following:

  • Not opting for direct deposit
  • Delays with the Postal Service, either with your paper return or a check that was mailed
  • Any math errors on your return or other adjustments or irregularities will often result in a delay
  • The Arizona Department of Revenue may need further verification on the information about some of the information on your return. In this case, the DOR may require you to provide additional information
  • If there is information missing on your return (Social Security Number, depending information, etc.) or the return is incomplete in any way, this will usually result in a delay

To get your refund as fast as possible, make sure all the info on your return is accurate. Also, make sure to submit your filing online and choose the direct deposit option to get your refund electronically sent to your bank account. This is both faster and more convenient for you.

Should there be any delays with your Arizona state tax refund, just call the hotline number we have provided above, or visit their website at https://azdor.gov/individual-income-tax-filing-assistance/wheres-my-refund.
