The IRS has owes money to several hundred Wisconsin taxpayers. The agency has over $914,000 that belongs to 854 taxpayers from the Badger State.
IRS spokesman Christopher Miller says most of the money is from refund checks the agency has been unable to deliver, usually because the mailing address was wrong. If that happens, Miller says the checks come back as undeliverable.
Miller says taxpayers who never received those checks can get them by going online to the IRS website and clicking on the “where’s my refund” link or by calling 1-800-829-1954. Taxpayers should have a copy of their taxes handy because you will need to know the amount of your anticipated refund.
Miller says taxpayers can avoid having their refund checks delayed in the future by filing their taxes electronically and selecting direct deposit.
