IRS: $153 Million in Undelivered Checks

Email  Print Print  

It’s December, do you know where your 2011 tax rebate check is? If you didn’t opt for direct deposit and don’t remember receiving a paper check, your dollars might one of the 153 million dollars the IRS still has in its coffers because they couldn’t get a check out to you (or it was mailed and returned or never deposited). The average undelivered refund check is $1,547 and who doesn’t need an extra fifteen hundred dollars in their pocket right now?

If you think you might have missed a check, use their Where’s My Refund tool to track it down. You will need your Social Security Number, Filing Status, and the Refund Amount – which you can get from your tax return.

While you’re at it, check out to see if you have any unclaimed property out there. If you haven’t looked in over a year, check again. I just checked and found a check from my alma mater (Carnegie Mellon) and I graduated over eight years ago (and the job I think I missed a paycheck for was at least ten years ago). So keep checking, things get turned over to the state all the time.
