In Alabama, the Department of Revenue handles the processing of state income taxes and refunds. To check the status of your Alabama tax refund, call the Department of Revenue at (334) 242-1099 or go online to visit the Department of Revenue's "Alabama Refund Search" website. Both options provide the same information.
To track your Alabama tax refund, provide your Social Security number and the amount of your expected refund. If your return does not show up, it may not have been processed into the system yet. If you want to check your refund via phone, the offices are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Your Alabama tax refund generally takes between five and six weeks to process. However, it could take longer if your return gets reviewed by the Alabama Department of Revenue. Because the refund for your federal tax refund is processed by a different agency than your state tax return, you may receive your refunds at different times. According to the Alabama Department of Revenue, opting for direct deposit of your refund is faster, because you don't have wait for the check to come in the mail or spend time depositing it in your account.
