State Tax Refunds Could Return Sooner

Updated: 7 years ago.
Georgians could be getting their refunds back faster this year.

More Georgians are using the Internet to file their tax returns. And state revenue officials say that should in-turn get refunds back to people faster.

Compared to tax deadline day last year, electronic filing is up 4-percent.

Last year, while struggling with staffing cuts, the state’s Department of Revenue needed until the end of August to process Georgia returns. That meant the state was forced to pay-out some interest.

This year, officials say they expect to meet its goal of mailing all refunds by July 15th. A second-shift of state revenue workers is helping, as well as the higher number of E-filers.
