Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
The IRS announced recently that it is looking to return $153.3 million in undelivered tax refund checks. In all, 99,123 taxpayers are due refund checks this year that could not be delivered because of mailing address errors.
Taxpayers checking on a refund over the phone will receive instructions on how to update their addresses. Taxpayers can access a telephone version of "Where's My Refund?" by calling 1-800-829-1954.
You should be aware that the IRS does not contact taxpayers by e-mail to alert them of pending refunds and does not ask for personal or financial information through email.
The best way for an individual to verify if she or he has a pending refund is going directly to IRS.gov and using the "Where's My Refund?" tool = http://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=96596,00.html
You may also call the IRS helpline - 1-800-829-1040
