Lost or Stolen Refund Check
If your refund check has been lost, destroyed or stolen, you must
write the North Carolina Department of Revenue to request another check.
We must have your written authorization before issuing a stop
payment or beginning forgery proceedings. If you filed a joint return,
you and your spouse must both sign the letter. Be sure to include your
current address, social security number, the tax year and a statement
asking for a stop payment or for the Department to begin forgery
We will notify you in writing within 30 days after receiving your
letter to advise you of the stop payment or forgery procedures.
Another check is usually issued between 30 to 60 days from the time
the Revenue Department receives your letter; however, if your check
has been cashed by someone else, forgery proceedings will take at
least 120 days to be completed.
If you receive your refund check after you have mailed your letter
requesting a replacement check, do not cash the check. Instead,
return the check to the North Carolina Department of Revenue.
Mail your written request to Customer Service, P.O. Box 1168, Raleigh,
N.C. 27602-1168, or fax your request to (919) 733-5750.
