COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - State budget cuts will likely mean delayed Georgia income tax refunds this year, unless you file electronically.
The State Revenue Commissioner says staff cuts mean there are fewer workers to handle paper returns. This will more than likely lead to a delay.
H&R Block says if you file electronically you should get your refund in about 10 days.
Last year, 278,000 Georgia tax payers got their refunds late. The incident cost the state 2 million dollars in interest.
