NC Officials Say Tax Refunds On Track After Delays

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina tax officials say the state is catching up on income tax refunds after a delay earlier this year caused by slow cash flow.

The Charlotte Observer reported Sunday that the Revenue Department said tax return filers who meet next the April 15 deadline should have their refunds by mid-May.

Revenue Department spokeswoman Beth Stevenson said the state had a similar problem last year and was able to get refunds out by May 13 to people who filed on time.

Stevenson says refunds delayed beyond May 31 start accruing 5 percent interest.

    I understand how everyone else feels I filed exactly 2 months ago and I go on the website, it tell me nothing I call and they give me the same bs I got from the web! This isn't my home state, I don't pay state tax in NV but they sure would have their stuff together if I did pay to the state of NV. I am seriously needing my refund to pay off some bills. This is beyond ridiculous, horrible leadership and poor planning!

    Filers who file by the April 15th deadline should get their checks mid May? What about filers who filed in early February and still haven't gotten their checks? The on-line status tells me the same thing still. Please call the 800 number for assistance. I did that and they couldn't tell me anything other than it had not been processed yet and had no clue when it would be. I think it's ridiculous.

    They cashed the large tax check I sent the state really fast. There is so much corruption in NC state government, it's amazing to me that we get along as well as we do.

    This is the worst of the worst leadership in the history of NC. I think the governor never did get her ged. She says she has a phd. I think not, unless it is in political corruption.

    I sent them a whole pile of money several days ago and they haven't even cashed the check yet. :(

    I got interest on a late refund last year and the state turned around and taxed that interest this year! I would rather they just keep the interest.

    Does the state pay for being late on payment? NO! Try being late on paying the money you need to pay! OH man they will go after you like you are a felon, late fee's,etc,
