Does the IRS Owe You Money?

According to a blurb on CNN/Money, the IRS is sitting on a little more than 99k undelivered tax refund checks totaling $153M. The checks in question, worth an average of $1547 each, were returned to the IRS due to mailing address errors. As big as these numbers appear, these checks correspond to just 0.01% of all returns, so only a (very) small minority of refunds were affected.

Regardless, if you want to avoid problems, you should opt for direct deposit when you file your tax return. And if your check doesn’t show up, be sure to follow up with the IRS.

Speaking of which… If you were supposed to receive a check, but it never arrived, you can use the “Where’s My Refund?” tool to resolve any delivery problems.

    I filed my federal income tax in 2012 for the year of 2011. I was support to get back $2400. But I only got $1500. I didn’t owe the irs or child support. I didn’t have any student loans or anything in that nature. But yet I didn’t receive all of my refund. The irs didn’t know what happened to it. How would I find out
