$10.6M in Tax Refunds Processed this Week
Hagåtña, Guam – Continuing their commitment to the timely payment of income tax refunds, the Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration announces the start of payments for Tax Year 2021 Income Tax Refunds. This week’s refund release totals $10,649,249. This represents 2,586 error-free returns filed on or before January 28, 2022 and will be paid by check and direct deposit.
“Since taking office, we have resolved to turn around refunds more quickly from their filing date and have, in fact, achieved what no other administration has been able to do in decades. We are grateful for our people’s patience as we worked to change and improve the way their government serves them,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “Alongside today’s announcement towards the gradual relaxation of COVID restrictions, we are confident that the road to recovery is on the horizon.”
“We thank the hard-working employees at the Department of Revenue and Taxation and the Department of Administration who have committed to ensuring that we keep to a consistent and accelerated schedule for the payment of refunds,” said Lieutenant Governor Josh Tenorio. “Now, less than a month since the tax filing season started, we are already seeing income tax refund payments being processed. We are proud to be able to get them into our people’s hands quickly to help mitigate the rapidly rising cost of living.”
