IRS holds millions in unclaimed tax refunds

Posted:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

A gift for some from the Internal Revenue Service just in time for the holidays.

The IRS says it is looking to return $153.3 million in tax refunds to taxpayers. The money comes from tax refund checks that could not be delivered because of mailing address mistakes.

Officials say they are holding money due to 99,123 taxpayers. Undelivered checks average $1,547.

To see if you have money waiting, visit the Where's My Refund? tool on the IRS website. The site will tell you the status of any outstanding refund and provide instructions to update your address. The same information is available by phone at 1-800-829-1954.
