Refund Lines in Motion, Some Turned Away Without Valid ID’s

165

Guam – The tax refund and COLA lines are in motion at all four locations today.

 

Thousands of people are moving slowly, but orderly, through long lines at GPO, the Micronesian Mall, the Agana Shopping Center to pick up their long awaited tax refund checks. And COLA recipients are getting their checks up at Rev & Tax.

The lines started to build at GPO and the Agana Shopping Center before 5am., both of which opened at 8am. Micronesia Mall opened its doors at 9am.

At one point this morning, the line at the Agana Shopping center stretched out the front, past Wendy’s down the back, wrapping 360- degrees around the building.  The lines at GPO and the Micronesian Mall were almost as long.

Guam Police  are on traffic and crowd patrol duty. And Guam Fire personnel are also on standby for anyone in need of medical care.

All 3 tax refund locations will be opened at 8am tomorrow, SATURDAY. And Rev & Tax will be handing out COLA checks Saturday as well from 8am to 5pm.

On the K-57 Breakfast Show, DOA Director Benita Manglona said some people have been turned away without valid IDs.  The biggest problem has been for those who came to pick up checks for someone else. You not only have to have a letter of authorization from the person your picking up the check for,  you have to have a copy of their photo ID, and you also have to have a provide a copy of your photo ID,  so officials know who picked up the check.
