State tax officials say there aren’t too many procrastinating Iowa taxpayers who’re waiting ’til tomorrow’s deadline to file their state income taxes. Renee Mulvey says most Iowans filed their Iowa taxes when they submitted their federal returns, and state officials estimate just 215-thousand Iowans will submit their income taxes to the state between April 15th and April 30th. Iowans have already submitted about one-point-two million state income tax returns, and Mulvey says the majority were submitted electronically.Mulvey says 730-thousand returns have been transmitted electronically — a 17 percent increase over last year. Iowa led the nation last year, with 46 percent of returns filed by electronic means. To date, the average refund on state income taxes is four-hundred-51 dollars. The state has paid out three-hundred-44 million dollars in refunds so far.
