Refund Checks Which are No Longer Negotiable (Expired)
Under Nebraska law, tax refund checks (refund warrants) can not be cashed after one year because they are considered to be expired. At that point, the Department of Revenue can no longer reissue the refund. If you have a refund warrant that cannot be cashed, contact the Department of Revenue to obtain the necessary forms which must be filed with the Nebraska State Claims Board. Once the State Claims Board has received and reviewed your completed and notarized form along with your expired refund warrant, notification will be sent to you regarding approval or denial of the expired refund warrant.
