The IRS is trying to return unclaimed tax refunds for taxpayers who didn’t file a federal return for 2018.
Here’s how you can claim yours.
How much can I get?
The IRS is trying to help those due for refunds but didn’t file their 2018 taxes. There are about 1.5 million taxpayers who meet the requirements. However, you’ll need to act fast as the deadline is approaching. Read more about it here.
Legally, there is only a three year window to claim these refunds. That means that it must be done by this year’s tax deadline, which is April 18.
According to the IRS, most people who qualify for the late refund can get about $813, but it varies based on the state. Find a state by state table on the IRS website.
