(CNN)Rhode Island issued 176 tax refund checks this week signed by iconic duo Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse -- instead of the state treasurer and controller.

The misprint was a result of a technical glitch in the Division of Taxation's automated refund check printing system, according to Jade Borgeson, chief of staff for the state's Department of Revenue.

The checks were mailed to taxpayers Monday and were related to various business taxes, including sales tax, corporate and tax credit refunds.

A majority of them were corporate tax refunds, Borgeson said.

Corrected checks will be reissued to affected taxpayers within one week.

Taxpayers who received a misprinted check should contact the Department of Revenue.
