State begins distributing withheld tax refunds

Posted: Updated:

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The state is now distributing about 20,000 tax refunds that were frozen for two weeks at the end of the last fiscal year.

With the new fiscal year beginning July 1, the Kansas Department Revenue sent 19,091 refunds to the Kansas Department of Administration for payment.

Jeannine Koranda, spokeswoman for the revenue department, says most Kansans who didn't get their refunds should have received them by now or will receive them soon.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1ygpkSG ) that the 20,000 returns were put on a "work list" because of edits or errors. Koranda stressed that the number of returns on the list changes because her department receives tax returns well after the April 15 deadline.

She says the department received more than 130,000 returns since May 15.
