ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — Some Mississippi taxpayers will have to wait longer for their state tax refund.

Kathy Waterbury with the Mississippi Department of Revenue tells WTVA-TV the agency is 150,000 refunds behind where it was this time last year.

Waterbury says the department’s computer hardware is simply slow.

She says it shouldn’t be much longer before the state catches up and checks are mailed or deposited.

Tax preparers suggest double checking information when filing taxes because there are several red flags that could pop up when going through fraud detection.
