tax returns

Gov. Cuomo talks tax returns, or lack thereof

Jul 9, 2013

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.

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.

"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. "It's just a volume issue that they're working through."
