Millions in Unclaimed Tax Refunds

Unclaimed Tax Refunds
How would you like to have a few hundred extra dollars in your wallet?

The IRS has recently announced they have millions of dollars in unclaimed tax refunds.. and some of that money just might belong to you.

I don’t know of anyone in these difficult financial times who couldn’t use some extra cash.

Many people don’t file a Federal income tax return, because they may not have made enough money in a given year.

However, in most cases taxes were withheld from these people’s wages. In other cases some people actually made quarterly estimated payments to the IRS.

More than 1 million of these taxpayers have not filed their income taxes.

The IRS has announced that at least half of those who have not filed their returns are owed refunds of nearly $640.. and many are owed even more!

Taxpayers only have a three year window to claim a refund. After that it is lost and gone forever.. and Uncle Sam gets to keep your hard earned money.

Since 2010 taxes were due to be filed by April 15th 2011.. your three years will be up in April 2014.

If you have not yet filed for 2010, 2011 or 2012.. now is the time to get going.

You just might get enough money back to buy yourself something nice  🙂

Think you might owe some money this year instead of getting a refund? Pay your taxes with a credit card and earn rewards on that payment.
