The IRS is sitting on federal income tax refund checks for more than 2,600 Arizona residents. The checks total almost $2 million in unclaimed tax funds – and the largest check is for $46,504.
If you are one of the “lucky” ones owed a check, the IRS would actually very much like to get you any money they might owe you. According to an IRS spokesman, taxpayers who believe they might be owed a refund can simply go to the IRS website, enter some identifying information, and give the IRS their correct address. Once that happens, the IRS will have to restart the refund process, and will get a check to the taxpayer in about six weeks.
How do refund checks go astray? The most common reason is that a taxpayer moves and does not notify the US Postal Service or update his address on file with the IRS. Taxpayers who are concerned that the IRS does not have their correct address can file a form 8882, “Change of Address.” The form can be downloaded at irs.gov or requested by calling 800-829-3676. Arizona taxpayers can also have funds deposited directly to their checking or savings account by selecting the electronic transfer option on their tax return.
