And getting answers on a timeline is proving to be quite difficult.
The controversy is receiving little coverage. Most taxpayers seem to shrug their shoulders, asking what can they do about it.
On Wednesday evening, tax collectors from across Luzerne County met at Luzerne County Community College. There was one taxpayer among them: Gary Lavieri of Forty Fort.
"I'm learning that my tax refund check and everybody elses in the state is at the bottom of the list and we may never receive our checks, according to what they're saying," said Lavieri.
Centax was hauled into a court by a local government in the Pittsburgh area. That move temporarily froze the complicated process of trying to determine what money was supposed to go where. Before that, a bonding company had appointed a third party to sort through the returns and the millions due to taxpayers and local governments across Pennsylvania.
The courts appointed Attorney Paul Cordaro as a receiver. In a phone interview two weeks ago with Eyewitness News, he confirmed governments would be paid first. Wilkes-Barre is owed an estimated $1.2 million. Without that money, the city has been unable to meet certain bills.
