What To Do If Your Tax Refund Check Isn’t Delivered

 

According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), millions of dollars in tax refunds go undelivered or unclaimed each year. If you believe your tax refund has gone astray, there are steps you can take to track it down.

To help you in your search Victory State Bank, the only community-based commercial bank on Staten Island, is sharing the following information from the IRS:

 

UNDELIVERED FEDERAL TAX REFUND CHECKS

Refund checks are mailed to your last known address. If you move without notifying the IRS or the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), your refund check may be returned to the IRS.

If you were expecting a federal tax refund and did not receive it, check the IRS' Where’s My Refund page. You'll need to enter your Social Security number, filing status, and the exact whole dollar amount of your refund. You may be prompted to change your address online. 

You can also call the IRS to check on the status of your refund. Wait times to speak with a representative can be long. But you can avoid the wait by using the automated phone system. Follow the message prompts when you call.

If you move, submit a Change of Address - Form 8822 (PDF, Download Adobe Reader) to the IRS; you should also submit a Change of Address to the USPS.

UNCLAIMED FEDERAL TAX REFUNDS 

If you are eligible for a federal tax refund and do not file a return, then your refund will go unclaimed. Even if you aren't required to file a return, it might benefit you to file if:

§  Federal taxes were withheld from your pay

and/or

§  You qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)

If you didn't file a tax return because your wages were below the filing requirement, you can still file a return within three years of the filing deadline in order to get your refund. 

STATE REFUND CHECKS

For information about your state tax refund check, contact your state revenue department.
