Despite initial disappointment, disabled veterans in Columbia County were delighted earlier this year when they learned many of them would be getting tax refunds.
The rebates were expected to average more than $1,000 – with checks coming, they thought, just in time for Black Friday sales. It was money they hadn’t expected, but now rightly anticipated.
Alas, it seems Columbia County tax officials bit off more than they could chew. Most of the affected veterans will be lucky to get a check before Christmas.
