(b) Said warrant shall be paid by the State Treasurer out of any appropriation for the refund of transfer inheritance taxes the same as warrants for the refund of such taxes under the transfer inheritance tax statutes of this State are paid.
(c) For estate tax paid with respect to reports or returns due on or after January 1, 1994, interest will be paid on overpayments not refunded within six months after the last date prescribed, or permitted by extension of time, for filing the return, or within six months after the return is filed, or payment of the tax due thereon, whichever is later. See N.J.A.C. 18:26-10.13 for calculation of the interest.
