Tax refund delay

Tax refund delay

By Daniel Gutierrez. CREATED Mar 27, 2013

Good news for anyone waiting for their check from the government.

Tax refund delays will be shorter than originally thought. A glitch in the software some taxpayers used to file their tax returns had caused the delay.

Now the IRS says refunds will likely be held up for only 2 to 4 weeks, instead of the 4 to 6 weeks originally predicted. The delay affects more than 600,000 people.
