Cigarette Tax Refunds

State officials are promising to return more than $82,000 they collected in back taxes from online cigarette sales.

The Department of Revenue sent out letters last week telling some consumers they owed back taxes on cigarettes they bought on-line after 1999. 200 people paid up.

However, soon after the letters were sent out, Governor Doyle called for the tax collection to stop.

Department of Revenue lawyers decided the state should give the money back. Officials say refund checks should arrive by the end of next week.
