Fiscal cliff debate may delay state tax refunds
USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
State tax refunds may be a surprise victim of the federal fiscal cliff. Federal and state tax systems are so intertwined that taxpayers will find it nearly impossible to file a state tax return — or get a timely refund — until Congress resolves the current fight over tax policy. More

Accounting Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
