|IOWA INCOME TAX REFUNDS WILL BE DELAYED IN 2018KSCJ / 2 h. 26 min. ago more|
Iowa officials are warning that state income tax refunds will be delayed in 2018.
Department of Revenue Director Courtney Kay-Decker says the refund delays are a result of her agency doubling down on fraud prevention efforts.
The news comes after Iowa residents were told this past spring that their state tax refunds would be delayed several weeks as a measure to combat identity theft and fraud.
But the Des Moines Register says the state didn’t have enough cash to pay residents at the same pace as previous years.
Kay-Decker says her agency stopped nearly 10,500 erroneous refunds from being processed this year through November 12th.
Those refunds accounted for more than $17 million.

A parolee charged with killing a former Sioux City man in an Iowa City bail bond office has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the case.

|IOWA CASINOS HOPE TO PROPOSE SPORTS BETTING LEGISLATIONKSCJ / 2 d. 1 h. 1 min. ago more|
Iowa’s casinos are aiming to get in on the business of sports betting.
Iowa Gaming Association executive director Wes Ehrecke says the federal “barrier” to sports betting may soon be removed.
OC…………to opt in.” :18
If that happens, Iowa’s casino industry will propose legislation in 2018 that would legalize sports betting in Iowa at the 19 state-licensed casinos.
Iowa lawmakers could then vote on legalizing sports betting in the state:
Ehrecke says Americans bet about 150 billion dollars a year on sporting events, but only five percent of that is done legally in the state of Nevada.
OC………like that.” :06
On Wednesday, Cedar Rapids Mayor Ron Corbett, a Republican candidate for governor, called for legalizing sports betting in Iowa.
Corbett says he would prefer the Iowa Lottery manage the wagering on football, baseball and basketball games.
He says that would create thousands of sites around the state for placing bets and Corbett says the Iowa Lottery is a “trusted brand” that could manage the betting volume.
