Automatic Taxpayer Refund update

INDIANA – The Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) continues to receive calls requesting forms for the $200 Automatic Taxpayer Refund (ATR). There is no special form to complete to receive this refund. 

Under Indiana law, eligibility requirements for the $200 ATR are different from the $125 ATR. Taxpayers that were eligible for the $125 ATR qualify for the $200 ATR and will receive payment by direct deposit or check. Some taxpayers who were not eligible for the initial $125 ATR will qualify for the $200 ATR. Instead of a direct payment, these taxpayers will receive a $200 tax credit toward any additional taxes owed or refund due.

To qualify for the $200 ATR, the taxpayer: 

  • must have received Social Security benefits in calendar year 2022 and 
  • must not be claimed as a dependent on a 2022 Indiana income tax return. 

These taxpayers must file a 2022 Indiana resident tax return to claim the $200 ATR before Jan. 1, 2024. Please note that tax returns for 2022 will not be accepted until mid-to-late January 2023. Additional information will be available early next year through
