The Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration is now 60 days in processing and paying income tax refunds. The latest batch of tax refunds totals $2,017,758, including refunds garnished to repay government debts. These represent the payment of 613 error-free returns filed on or before August 20, 2021. Since 2019, the Department of Revenue and Taxation (DRT) and the Department of Administration (DOA) have been working to ensure refunds are processed and paid on a consistent, expedient basis.

“We are proud of the progress we have made with tax refunds, closing the gap between filing date to actual payment,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “We look forward to processing the upcoming tax cycle just as quickly and providing our people what is rightfully owed to them even sooner.”

“Tax refunds have not been paid out this quickly in two decades,” said Lieutenant Governor Josh Tenorio. “With our improved government finances and greater access to online services, our people are benefiting from this progress, including continuous improvements in the turnaround time of refunds.”
