Oregonians owed $14 million in unclaimed tax refunds, IRS says

The IRS estimates almost 30,000 people in North Carolina could be eligible for refunds.

Almost a billion dollars in unclaimed tax money, but taxpayers only have about a month to claim it.

If you one of those 1 million, you must file a 2013 tax return with the IRS no later than April 18, this year's tax deadline. If they do not file a return within three years, the money becomes the property of the U.S. Treasury. In 2013, it was worth more than $, 6000.

Tax season is upon us, and consumers across the country are getting ready to file their federal income tax return if they haven't aleady. "People across the nation haven't filed tax returns to claim these refunds, and their window of opportunity is closing soon". There is no penalty for filing a late return if you are due a refund.

Bottom line, if you haven't filed the 2013 federal tax return, do it now and get the money you're due from the government.

By law, most taxpayers get a 3 year window to claim a refund.

$14,340 ($19,680 if married filing jointly) for people without qualifying children. The median potential refund is $749. Tax forms and instructions are available at IRS.gov or by calling 1-800-829-3676. Remember, the IRS will NEVER send an email asking for your personal information.
