BATON ROUGE - Members of the Louisiana Legislature are expressing concern over delays for people in getting their state tax refunds.

They say they are getting complaints from people who have been waiting weeks to get their money.

Senate President John Alario asked the revenue department Friday for an explanation on why there is a delay.

The Department of Revenue began a new fraud prevention system last year.
Their website warns that refund processing may be slower.  The department says paper returns could take up to 16 weeks, but electronically filed returns should have quicker processing.
The department says e-filers should still expect a wait of 21 days.
