ST. PAUL (AP) – The Minnesota Department of Revenue is reeling back 14,000 electronic tax refunds after it discovered that they were inadvertently sent out twice.

The refunds were dispersed to taxpayer bank accounts Friday and were accidentally sent out Monday as well. The state tax department learned of the error shortly after and reversed the second round of payments.

Those affected should expect to see two identical refund deposits; one will be reversed Wednesday.

The department blamed it on “human error” and is investigating ways to prevent it from happening again.

Nearly 670,000 refunds have been sent out so far this year.
