Refunds for Improperly Collected Taxes Due to “Computer Glitch” Will Take Weeks: Michigan Dept. of Treasury
In testimony before the House Oversight and Ethics Committee yesterday Michigan Department of Treasury officials told lawmakers that refunds for taxes improperly collected on 76,000+ accounts due to a "computer glitch" would take at least 12 more weeks, depending on "other priorities."
During the hearings, State Legislators also pressed Treasury for a better, more transparent cost/benefit analysis of the Department's efforts to identify unregistered businesses. The Detroit Free Press reported this story yesterday.
