Hagåtña, Guam – The Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration this week is releasing 2,086 Tax Year 2021 and prior income tax refunds, including those garnished to repay government debts, totaling approximately $6,076,687. The latest batch of payments processed by the Department of Revenue and Taxation and distributed by the Department of Administration represent error-free returns filed on or before February 1, 2022, and will be paid by check or direct deposit.
“With the rising cost of living, from gas to groceries, the timely payment of tax refunds is a lifeline for many of our people in these precarious economic times,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “While past administrations pushed aside issuing the people of Guam their money, our administration made it a top priority. Today, taxpayers are receiving their refunds in record time. This is and will continue to be our Gold Standard.”
“For many families, these refunds help bridge the gap of resources available to them to meet a myriad of basic household needs, from rent to utilities, and much more during these difficult times,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “The hard work of the Department of Revenue and Taxation and Department of Administration these past three years to deliver refunds quicker into the hands of our people has been of even greater significance since the pandemic.”
