DOR says state tax returns ‘on target’

The Department of Revenue reports it is “on target” with state income tax returns this year, and able to answer more phone calls from taxpayers after budget and staff increases.

As of early this week, DOR spokeswoman Kathy Waterbury said, the department had sent out 655,943 refunds totaling $275,968,521.

“That’s out the door, gone,” Waterbury said. “We’ve got all the mail open, all the returns scanned and all the payments deposited.”
