Ga Revenue Department Working on Refund Snafu
Thursday, 27 January 2011

January 27-- The Georgia Department of Revenue issued the following statement Tuesday about a computer error which may effect your tax refund via direct deposit.  The latest update on the situation is also provided below.

On January 20, 2011, the Georgia Department of Revenue issued 2010 Georgia income tax refunds by direct deposit.  The Department became aware of a computer system error in the calculation of refunds.  To ensure that correct payments were made to taxpayers, the Department issued a “stop payment” on those refunds. Due to the computer error, any funds deposited with a taxpayer were rescinded and returned to the Department.

The Department has corrected the computer programming error and is commencing to reissue the refunds.   The Department is working with various financial institutions concerning any banking charges made against taxpayers’ financial accounts.

The Department will continue to provide updates concerning the Department’s efforts in this matter.

Latest Update Issued Thursday Morning


The Department of Revenue announced today that it has begun reissuing income tax refunds to taxpayers affected by last Thursday’s income tax refund snafu. 


“Refunds will be generated daily to taxpayers over the next seven days,” DOR Commissioner Doug MacGinnitie said. “The Department takes this matter seriously and would like to apologize to all affected taxpayers.” 


The Department also announced the reimbursement procedure for affected taxpayers who were assessed overdraft charges by their financial institution.  The DOR is continuing to work with all financial institutions that are involved. 


The reimbursement procedure can be found on the Home Page of the DOR website here:
