Are You Eligible for a Taxpayer Refund?

AARP Indiana is reminding older Hoosiers that they may be eligible for a $200 taxpayer refund even if they are on Social Security and do not typically file tax returns.

To receive the payment, individuals who get Social Security and don’t normally earn enough to file taxes may file a 2022 tax return and claim the $200 as a tax credit. (It must be filed before Jan. 1, 2024.) Those who don’t owe taxes will receive the refund. If someone does owe taxes, the $200 will go toward the balance due.

To qualify, lower-income taxpayers 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.

The Indiana General Assembly passed legislation authorizing the $200 refund, and Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) signed the measure into law in August. It followed a previous one-time $125 taxpayer refund also issued last year.
