Request a State Checkoff Refund

Not satisfied with your state checkoff programs? You may be eligible for a refund.

Checkoff tax payments are mandatory, but in many states a refund from the state-level checkoff program is available. Each state has its own regulations and process. Below is state checkoff refund information we have been able to gather, but please note that it is not a complete list. If your checkoff program is not listed below, we suggest calling the commodity checkoff office for your commodity in your state and asking if they offer refunds and how to obtain one. Many checkoff programs choose not to make refund information readily available.
