TOPEKA (AP) -- Here's another reason for filing your income taxes early: Kansas has stopped issuing tax refund checks because the state's low on money.

Department spokeswoman Freda Warfield said most taxpayers have already received their refunds. The delay mostly will affect late filers and people who made mistakes on their tax returns.
