ALBANY – As tax season is in full swing, the New York State Department of Taxation Finance is reminding taxpayers of a quick tip to receive their refund faster.

The Department says e-filing will allow their refunds to come back up to two weeks sooner.










Not only is the electronic process more efficient, it is also safer with a reduced risk of fraud.

To use direct deposit, simply check “direct deposit” on your tax return, then enter your bank’s nine-digit routing number and your account number.





Officials say if you forgo the direct deposit method to make sure your mailing address is correct when requesting a refund check by mail.

Taxpayers can quickly view the status of their New York State tax refund anytime by using the Check your Refund application on the Tax Department website.
