  • Haven’t gotten your state tax refund? You’re not alone

    Huffington Post - 03/22/2017

    Timothy Gagnon, an associate professor of accounting at Northeastern University, questions the effectiveness of states asking for driver’s license information.

    “They don’t think someone who got your Social Security [number] and name and address won’t have that?” he said sarcastically. “And I don’t like them collecting more information that they don’t need to have in their files.”

    In contrast, Gagnon said, delaying refunds is a good fraud-prevention tactic, although delays burden some taxpayers, usually lower-income filers, more than others.
