Cuomo talks tax returns, or lack thereof http://wrvo.org/post/gov-cuomo-talks-tax-returns-or-lack-thereof <p>While many New Yorkers who filed their income tax returns have already received a refund from the state, there are others, mainly those who filed their returns on paper, whose refund has not arrived yet.</p><p>Gov. Andrew Cuomo said last week the reason for the delay is not due to an oversight, but rather because of a backlog of tax returns to sort through.</p><p>"Ninety-six or 97 percent of the refunds have been already sent out and the tax department is working on the remaining three percent," Cuomo said.
