400 duplicate tax refund checks mailed by state

The Department of Employment Security continues to lead the way for bureaucratic bungling this summer, but the Department of Revenue Administration Services is trying to keep up. New Hampshire Business Review reports on 1,600 residents who have gotten duplicate checks they won't be able to keep.
The New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration sent out nearly 400 duplicate refund checks to taxpayers last week, about a week after the Department of Employment Security sent out 1,200 duplicate unemployment checks.

All told, roughly $400,000 of the state’s money was sent out by mistake. However, both departments said they should recoup all of the money without much of a problem.
