A programming error has caused the state of Georgia to owe nonprofits and out-of-state limited liability partnerships refunds totaling $1.8 million.
A 2010 fee hike was put into the state's computer systems incorrectly, causing nonprofits and LLPs to be over-charged.
The General Assembly raised registration fees for corporations, partnerships, associations, domestic limited partnerships and limited liability companies from $30 to $50 in 2010.
Nonprofits and out-of-state LLPs were accidentally charged $50 as well. They are supposed to pay between $25 and $30.
The Georgia Secretary of State says organizations that filed an annual registration between Aug. 12, 2010, and April 13, 2012, may be eligible for a partial refund.
