Acting Director Haug noted the General Revenue Fund repaid the $475 million borrowed from the Budget Reserve Fund during fiscal year 2016, well ahead of the Constitutional deadline of May 15. 

Acting Director Haug also noted that, due to extensions granted by the IRS and the Department of Revenue in 33 flooded counties, there may be a significant number of taxpayers who have until May 16 to file their taxes. Along with the IRS extension, the 2016 individual income tax return due date was delayed from April 15 to April 18 due to a federal holiday in Washington D.C, pushing back the receipt of mail by several days. The extended due date along with other processing issues resulted in delayed payment processing.
