Idaho’s individual income tax filing season opens Jan. 20, along with IRS

BOISE, IDAHO — Jan. 14, 2015 — The Idaho State Tax Commission will start processing 2014 Idaho individual income tax returns on Jan. 20, the same date the Internal Revenue Service begins processing federal returns.

As in previous years, all Idaho tax returns will go through accuracy checks and a fraud review before any refunds are issued. E-filing a return is the quickest way to receive a refund, and adding the direct deposit option gets money in the bank even faster. 

E-filers: Expect to receive your refund within seven weeks from the date you receive your state acknowledgement.

Paper filers: It can take up to 10 weeks for your refund to complete processing.

First-time filers: If our online refund system tells you that your return isn’t in the Tax Commission’s system, please be patient. It takes about three weeks to enter a first-time filer into the system.

Taxpayers can get help by visiting our website at tax.idaho.gov, check their refund status through the “Where’s my refund?” link, or get other questions answered by calling the Tax Commission at (208) 334-7660 in the Boise area or toll free at (800) 972-7660.

The deadline to file 2014 income taxes is April 15.
