Taxpayers Owed $73 Million

Does the Federal Government owe you money?  If you filed a tax return for 2003, they just might.

The Internal Revenue Service is looking for over 87,000 U.S. taxpayers whose refund checks could not be delivered this past year.  The government cuts nearly 100 million checks each year, paying folks back that overpaid on their taxes.  But not all of those checks reach their intended destination.

Because of bad addresses or other problems with an account, those checks come back to the IRS and sit, waiting to be claimed.  Across the country there were 87,485 of those checks listed as undeliverable for the 2003 tax year.  In Texas alone over 7,628 people didn't get their hands on their money.  Costing those Texans $6.98 million.

The IRS makes it easy to find out if you're owed a refund.  All you have to do is go to their website, www.irs.gov. .  Once there you'll find the link "Where's My Refund" click on that and you'll be taken to a page where you'll need your social security number, filing status and the refund amount listed on your 2003 tax return form.

Once that's complete hit submit and you'll soon learn if you're owed money, how much and if there are any other problems with your account.  The government says there is $73 million in tax money up for grabs, and with a few clicks you can find out if you're one of the lucky ones.

The average tax return for those living in East Texas in 2003 was $916.  To found out if you have an outstanding refund click on the link below.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
