Many Mass. residents are still awaiting a refund check triggered by tax-cap law. Here’s why.

2 weeks after state officials began sending taxpayers their share of a whopping $3B refund triggered by a 1986 tax-cap law, many residents are still awaiting their checks, which remain a hot topic.

Refunds started going out on Nov. 1 & there’d be a roughly 6-week process of doling out checks & direct deposits to millions of taxpayers. 

Eligible taxpayers are set to receive their refunds on a rolling, random basis, officials have said previously.

Anyone who’s filed a 2021 tax return, and incurred a tax liability, will automatically receive a refund by Dec. 15, officials said.

Of course, some lucky residents have already gotten a check — one they weren’t even expecting.

“Anyone else get a surprise tax refund check from Massachusetts for 2021? Wild!” tweeted Hub-based tech entrepreneur Jared Stenquist on Thursday.
