SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- California's controller said Friday he will be forced to impose a 30-day delay on tax refunds and some other payments starting Feb. 1 if lawmakers fail to agree on a plan to erase a nearly $42 billion budget deficit.
That means the average folks may have to wait to get thier tax money back. You can bet your butt that if this was reversed therewould be no waiting on YOU to pay YOUR taxes! What do you Cali moms think? Does anyone else think this might spread to their state?
I'm a Cali Mom, yes I've heard of it and it's upsetting, feels illegal, immoral, and wrong. They've went almost a good part of a year not working on a budget and are spreading in into the next year, I'm amazed the Governor hasn't been run out of town, am amazed people have been quiet about all this, and am not surprised of their actions, just not happy.
I don't think this stupidity will spread to other states... because no other person I know and I know a lot that live in other states has had the problems California has had with budgets and such, they're not being poorly ran like our state is... I'll be it some of these states have poor leaders as well, but probably none that deprive workers of pay because they haven't done the budget and are now looking at withholding tax refunds on top of it.
