Some checks still being issued for Oklahoma tax refunds

Some banks have recently received a checks for an Oklahoma state tax refund. Since many media reports have touted the fact all refunds will be direct deposit or on a debit card, the assumption was it must be fraudulent.

A call to the Tax Commission revealed there are four scenarios they will still be issuing checks, including warrant intercept checks. There are also situations where corporate refunds will be in the form of a check. If your bank receives paper checks for state refunds and you have reason to suspect it is suspicious, you can still place holds or do additional steps to verify, but you do not want to just reject all paper checks as fraudulent.
