Expecting money back from the state for your taxes? You may not be getting that cash for a while. The state is suspending all income tax refunds. In addition, it says it may not be able to pay its employees on time either. The simple answer is there's not enough money in the state's main bank account. That's not unusual around this time of year. The governor just usually asks the finance committee to transfer funds into the account. But today, that committee said no.
