Hawaii sending last of tax refunds

HONOLULU (AP) - The last of Hawaii tax refunds are being mailed this week after they had been delayed because of state government budget shortages.

State Comptroller Russ Saito says the final 30,000 checks were scheduled to be sent this week after they finished printing Tuesday.

Taxpayers who requested their refunds by direct deposit should have received them by July 15, unless the deposit was rejected for insufficient or erroneous routing information.

Most of the remaining refunds are for residents who missed the April 20 filing deadline.

Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle had ordered a delay of some tax refunds until July, when the new fiscal year starts, so that the state could balance its budget on paper.

In all, $294 million in refunds were due this year.
