Georgia takes back tax refunds

ATLANTA -- The state Department of Revenue deposited 2010 tax refunds into Georgians' accounts in the last few days then withdrew them, leaving people with strings of bank charges for overdrawn accounts.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution said one man called the department and was offered no explanation of how or why the money was taken back.

"They just said there may have been an error," he said.

And they told him he could appeal his overdraft charges resulting from the withdrawal to the state.
