Tips to Make Filing Easier

To avoid processing delays and to speed the issuance of any refund, the Tax Division urges people to follow these five steps:

  1. Check the Tax Division Website for the latest tax information.
  2. Organize and gather 2023 tax records including Social Security numbers, Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers, Adoption Taxpayer Identification Numbers, and this year's Identity Protection Personal Identification Numbers valid for calendar year 2024.
  3. Use a bank account, prepaid debit card or mobile app to use direct deposit. Taxpayers will need to provide routing and account numbers.
  4. Make final estimated tax payments for 2023 by Tuesday, January 16, 2024, to help avoid a possible assessment for taxes owed and penalties.
  5. Set up or log in securely at MyTaxes.WVTax.Gov to access personal tax account information including balance, payments, and tax records including adjusted gross income.
