The U.S. Treasury is ready to start printing tax refund checks from the tax cut legislation signed in Washington. It won’t be long before those who paid income taxes in 2000 get their refund checks from the federal government. The Internal Revenue Service in St. Louis reminds Missourians checks will be mailed out over a ten week period beginning on July 23rd. Notices informing taxpayers of the refund amounts will be sent out starting next week. The mailing of the actual checks is based on the last two digits of a taxpayer’s Social Security number.
