They say the pace of life is slow in the South, but Georgia House Speaker Glenn Richardson thinks at least one facet of life should be faster in Georgia. Richardson revealed that he filed both his federal and state taxes on the April 17 deadline. The Internal Revenue Service cashed his check on April 19, but the state didn’t get around to cashing its check until May 13.

Could Georgia’s slow pace be hurting revenues? Well, Gov. Sonny Perdue cited April’s low tax collections as one reason for his veto of a property-tax rebate. Were April’s tax collections really down 24% from last year, or are there just a lot of unopened envelopes lying around at the Department of Revenue?
