On May 4th, WPRI, Channel 12, in Providence went looking for answers for the late refunds. The bottom line is you should have it by the end of May and if you don’t, their excuse for not getting them out is that you are suspected of fraud. Of course it’s not because they just can’t get their job done. It seems as though it might be quite easy to just throw all the returns in the “fraud” bin so they can pick through them at their leisure.
If you get a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, it’s a scam. Just hang up on them. The IRS will notify you by mail first if there is ever a problem. If you get a letter from the IRS, send a copy along to us. We’ll check it out and let you know if it’s legitimate and/or what the issue is. If you get a phone call, unless you’re expecting it, just hang up.
