Still waiting for a tax refund
Some New Yorkers are still waiting to receive their state tax refunds.
As previously reported by CBS 6 News, there have been delays in processing state personal income tax returns this year. According to department of Taxation and Finance spokesperson Geoff Gloak, "95% of refunds have been issued. The remaining refunds are going out daily. As of May 31, by law all refunds issued for over-withholding for returns filed by the April 15 deadline are receiving interest. Also by law, interest is not paid on refunds for refundable credits."
Jay Skellie, a Salem dairy farmer, says he was told he might not see his refund for another 6 to 8 weeks or longer. Skellie says they’re due to receive a sizable refund. Not having it is making managing their checkbook a challenge.
