POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jul 31, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> I filed my Hawaii state tax late March for 2013. I am due a refund of nearly $7,000, but have not received it yet. When I checked the status online, it said that amount had been processed, but that no refund is due. When I called, I was told that because of my credit for photovoltaic installation, my refund was under review. How long does it take?</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> The state Department of Taxation is reviewing all tax refunds because &quot;the amount of tax fraud occurring has risen substantially&quot; in recent years, nationally and statewide, said spokeswoman Mallory Fujitani.</p>
