Ohio's tax department says a promise that it would send a woman a $200 million refund check was a mistake due to a software glitch.
The Sandusky Register reports Denise Bossetti was among 9,700 taxpayers statewide who received Ohio Department of Taxation notices about mega-refunds. It's not clear if the other amounts were as big as what Bossetti was told to expect.
The woman from Huron in northern Ohio was sent a letter dated Jan. 24 saying her $200 million refund could not be paid by direct deposit so she'd be sent a check.
Bossetti says she and her boyfriend had a "big laugh" over the letter.
Another dated a week later explained there'd been a software error.
Tax department spokesman Gary Gudmundson says the problem has been fixed.
