BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts officials report they have already issued more than $775 million in state tax refunds with the tax filing deadline fast approaching.

Through Friday, the Department of Revenue said it had processed about 2.4 million state income tax returns, the vast majority of which were filed electronically.

The department reported the average turnaround time for an e-filed tax refund was about 5 days, while refunds on returns filed by paper took more than 14 days to process and deliver.

About 1.7 million refunds had been issued as of Friday.

The agency also reported handling nearly 50,000 tax-related inquiries with an average wait time for callers of 144 seconds.

The deadline for filing state and federal taxes is Wednesday.
