The state is using $250 million dollars in stimulus money to send tax refunds.
The Office of Administration announced its transferring that amount into the state's general revenue fund to make it happen. The move was necessary because income and sales tax revenues have fallen even further behind already negative projections. Some Missourians have been waiting since mid-March to receive their rebates. The infusion of stimulus cash should allow refund checks to be sent out by June 8th.
