I filed my state income tax return last week — Friday, March 11.
Today — exactly 1 week later — I received my refund from the Department of Revenue Services.
I filed electronically — but the check came in the mail.
This is not just fast service — it’s warp bureaucratic speed.
I’m pleased, sure. But I can’t help thinking: Shouldn’t the state be holding onto my money for as long as it can?
