Hundreds now receiving tax refunds

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - One Mid-South state is revealing why hundreds of taxpayers had to wait to receive their tax refunds.

New details from the Mississippi Department of Revenue blame the late returns on the fact they are so understaffed.

According to a recent statistic by the Mississippi Department of Revenue, only 16% of the calls about refunds are getting answered.

The department is now asking for more than $4 million to create 92 new positions.

The Magnolia State state confirmed these positions will help alleviate staffing issues.
