PNC went to the Guam main facility to find out how quickly the post office will be able to handle and distribute the 34 thousand tax refund checks that are being released today. Acting officer in charge Bob Gallo says that these checks won't pose much of a problem for the U.S. Postal Service. "Once they come in they'll be coming in a large bulk mail basically as long as they meet the five o'clock deadline here then they're processed tonight so they'll go through our machines they'll be processed and ready for delivery tomorrow morning,” said Gallo.
PNC has confirmed with Dan Hattig of the DOA that the last batch of refund checks were delivered to the post office this afternoon. So what time can people expect their refund checks in their mailbox? It depends on your post office's box up time or the time that your post office loads it's boxes with the day's mail. "Well generally each post office has their own box up time, Barrigada is one o'clock so if the mail is processed tonight then they should be in the P.O. Boxes in Barrigada by one o'clock in the afternoon Tamuning and Agana slightly different but it's approximately the same time,” said Hattig.
Each post office has their box up times posted in their facility. So what about those with home delivery? "Home delivery all the mail again gets processed here in Barrigada they're delivered to the carriers first thing in the morning then of course they go out to the street so depending on when the carrier normally arrives at your house it shouldn't be too much different,” said Hattig.
This means most people should get their checks tomorrow. However, any money owed to GMH, GHURA, the District Court or the A.G.'s office for child support will be deducted from your refund check. In fact Rev&Tax director John Camacho says that they have already estimated a total of $3.3 million will be garnished. $2.4 million will go to GMH, $689 thousand to child support, $86 thousand to GHURA and $50 thousand to the District Court.
PNC also hit the streets to find out what people are planning on doing with their refund checks. "Well first i'm gonna donate to the church and then pay some of my bills,” said Rose Gogue. "Save it for my daughters 18th birthday for next year that's all set," said Josephina Dado. "Well actually I'm just gonna pay for all my bills yeah just to catch up and I'm waiting for another tax refund next year,”said Felix Dubriano. As long as all the addresses are correct and legible refund checks should be in mailboxes by tomorrow afternoon.
