20K Kansas refunds won’t go out until July

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — More than 20,000 tax refunds to be distributed by the state of Kansas won’t go out until July.

Department of Revenue spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda said that as of this week, the department has a backlog of 20,690 individual tax refunds, which adds up to $10.1 million. This time last year, the department had 24,603 returns to send out.

Koranda says the department has worked hard to get refunds out in a timely manner.

She pointed to three reasons refunds checks may be late in arriving: the return was filed late, is missing paperwork or is being scrutinized for fraud.

She said 5,000 returns have come in the last week, which is fairly typical.
