Double refund? Not so fast: Some Grand Rapids residents get 2 city income tax refund checks

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Officials say a computer glitch is responsible for 73 Grand Rapids residents getting two income tax refund checks from the city instead of one.

WOOD-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1jf9d3i ) one of the 73 people came forward to alert the city.

City Manager Greg Sundstrom says it's not known what caused an April 27 computer problem that led to double checks being mailed, but officials are making sure it won't happen again. The TV station reports checks averaged $20 for a total of about $1,500.

Sundstrom says any of the "lucky 73" who got double refunds may contact the city income tax office to mail back checks or drop them off. As for the error being reported by one of them, Sundstrom says: "Honesty is still a strong trait here in Grand Rapids."
