Check Your Return or Refund Status

Beginning in 2017, you may track your tax return and refund status online using myVTax, our new online filing system. Please be aware the e-filed returns have an expected time frame of 6-8 weeks, while paper returns typically take at least 8-12 weeks.

The Department employs many review and fraud prevention measures in order to safeguard taxpayer funds. Although uncommon, these measures may result in refund wait times in excess of 10 weeks. We apologize for this inconvenience and are actively working to release these refunds. The easiest way to check on the status of your refund is by visiting myVTax. Our tax examiners do not have additional information about the status of your refund beyond what is available to you from our website. If you have further questions, you may email

Please note: If the information on your return does not match the information available to the Department, your refund maybe delayed but no action is required on your part. The Department may be waiting for employer or IRS information for data verification. If we need additional information from you before issuing your refund, you will be contacted in writing.
