Department of Taxation and Finance

Corporation Tax Refund Processing

Before State taxes can be refunded to corporations, the Office of the State Comptroller must approve the payments. During the year ended March 31, 1995, we prevented the payment of nearly $3.7 million in incorrect tax refunds. We also prevented an additional $2.4 million in incorrect tax refunds; these refunds were identified by us as possibly incorrect in prior years and were determined to be incorrect by the Department during the year ended March 31, 1995. Included in this amount was more than $1.8 million that would have been paid to a single taxpayer. We also identified $852,000 in additional refunds that were due to taxpayers.
