Ohio Tax Refunds May Be Delayed– October 31, 2014 by Karen Raghanti

We recently received a notice from the Ohio Department of Taxation (ODT) stating that state tax refunds may be delayed “due to a high number of returns filed using suspected stolen personal IDs that were received during the recent six-month filing extension.”

ODT has added more personnel to assist getting legitimate refunds out in a timely fashion. However, we can expect more refund delays due to fraud concerns, at least from Ohio, as tax filing season begins in January 2015.
