Ala. up to 2 months behind on tax refunds

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama taxpayers expecting refunds may
have to wait up to two months before getting a check this year.

State Revenue Commissioner Tim Russell says the state is taking
six to eight weeks to return refunds to taxpayers.

Alabama has so far paid $275 million in refunds this fiscal year. In fiscal year 2008, the department refunded $518 million.

Russell says a reason for the delay is a slowing cash flow due
to the economic downturn.

He says he hopes the pace picks up soon. The department is
required to pay interest starting July 16.
