5. The Patrick-Murray administration's Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation recommended that tax filers avoid so-called Refund Anticipation Loans (RAL) and Refund Anticipation Checks (RAC) because the costs attached significantly reduce the size of refunds. RALs and RACs promise consumers immediate payments for their refunds but come with costs so high through fees and interest rates that federal regulators have moved to block all RALs by next year.
