What’s Happening:

  • ABC News is reporting that Rhode Island mistakenly sent more than 175 tax refund checks signed by Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse instead of the state treasurer and controller.
  • The iconic signatures of Walt and Mickey are used on test files by the Rhode Island Division of Taxation and were mistakenly printed on some real checks.
  • The tax refund checks were mostly sent to business for corporate, sales and tax credits.
  • All checks with Walt Disney’s and Mickey Mouse’s signatures have been voided and replacement checks are being issued.
