EAST FLATBUSH - Brooklyn residents with school-age children thought they were getting a tax credit today, instead all they got was chaos.

Parents came out to R & S School Tax Service as early as 3 a.m. to collect a $370 New York City tax credit that would help with buying school supplies. But those who came never received the money.

Robert Battle, owner of R & S, says that too many people came out and many had the wrong information.

Parents were frustrated and as the crowd grew, Battle had to shut down the business before things got further out of hand.
