IRS Might Have Some of Your Money
The IRS has some money that might belong to you.
More than 20-thousand Louisiana taxpayers are due a refund from the federal government and time is running out to claim the cash.
I-R-S spokesperson Bill Brunson says these folks haven't gotten the money back because they didn’t file a 2013 federal income tax return. He says citizens due this cash must file the necessary paperwork by April 18.
Brunson says the median potential refund is $763. He says it can be hard for people to get their W-2 or 1099 from three years ago because the taxpayer may not have the same employer. But he says the IRS can help with that.
Brunson says people can request a Wage and Income transcript at IRS.gov. The IRS estimates more than $21 million in unclaimed refunds may be available to Louisiana taxpayers.
