I mailed my return and haven't heard anything. Should I send a copy of my return?


Do not send us a copy of your return. You should receive your refund or a letter from us within 8 weeks of the date you mailed your return, or 2 weeks from the date you filed electronically.

Go to Check Your Personal Income Tax Refund Status to get information about your refund. If it has been more than 8 weeks from the date you filed your return and you still have not heard anything, then visit our Tax Assistance page for information on how to contact us.
