Several Rhode Island residents were taken by surprise this week after opening their tax refund checks to see they had been signed by none other than “Mickey Mouse.”
The state issued 176 checks to taxpayers on Monday before realizing that the names of the state treasurer and controller were replaced by “Mickey Mouse” and “Walt Disney” on the signature line, according to CNN.
The article goes on to state the following:
Jade Borgeson, chief of staff for the Department of Revenue, said that the faulty signatures were a result of a technical error in the Division of Taxation’s automated refund check printing system. “The invalid signature lines were incorrectly sourced from the Division’s test print files,” Borgeson said in a statement, CNN reported.
The checks were for corporate and sales tax rebates as well as tax credit refunds. They were supposed to include the names of state treasurer Seth Magaziner and state controller Peter Keenan.
