Charity Begins At Home
Media reports say it appears there was a glitch affecting electronically filed tax returns. But the maker of the popular TurboTax software says its forms automatically select "no" in the box asking whether refunds should be donated. State law requires that surplus revenue be returned to taxpayers — and refunds this year totaled more than a billion dollars.
Wednesday, revenue officials said they have not yet decided whether they will return the mistakenly donated money — but hope to reach a decision by Christmas.
