NJ suspends program that's delaying tax refunds
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - April 2, 2013 (WPVI) -- New Jersey is suspending an ID theft program that has delayed tax refunds to 13,000 taxpayers.
Refunds will be paid starting next week.
Software initially flagged 22,000 tax refunds in February, requiring taxpayers to provide additional information such as W-2 forms and recent pay stubs. The state then said 9,000 filers should not have been included.
Treasury Department spokesman William Quinn tells the Asbury Park Press the current program needs further modification to better balance fraud prevention benefits with the burdens it imposes on taxpayers.
