CHECK YOUR ACCOUNT: Louisiana accidentally gave 66,000 taxpayers a double refund

Don't spend that money!

That's what Louisiana officials are telling the 66,000 people who received extra cash in their tax refund due to a system glitch.

A computer error gave people two times what they were originally supposed to get, costing taxpayers $26 million.

Most of that money was distributed by direct deposit, but now officials are working to get the money back.
