The department's spokesman Ted Farnen said, there is no guarantee tax payers will see their money before June 30.
Farnen said the State will put off paying some tax refunds because of the lack of revenue this year.

|Description: There is just only so much money for refunds every month and we have to make sure, to be fiscally responsible, that there's the money there when we send out the refunds.|
The State Budget Office says it could be as long as June 30 before citizens see their refunds.
Revenue Department Spokesman Ted Farnen said the department will give priority to property tax credits, because they help low-income and disabled citizens.

|Description: We made a decision to try and process those as quickly as possible because of who the recipients are. These are people...we all need the money, but they really really need the money.|

Department of Revenue Spokesman Ted Farnen said the department only has so much money each month to refund taxes, so some Missourians will have to wait.

|Description: Again, this is kind of an extraordinary year. The Governor has asked us to do more with less, and we're doing that, we're trying to do it as best we can.|
Farnen said the department will give priority to property tax credits filed by low income and disabled Missourians because they need the money more urgently than other citizens.
The latest tax returns should be mailed is June 30.
