Check The Status Of Your Refund

The department offers two ways you can check on the status of your refund. These can tell you if your return has been processed or if it is pending. They cannot tell you when you will receive your refund. Once your check is written, they will tell you how long to allow for delivery.

Please note: NCDOR employees are not able to tell you when you can expect your refund.
