Did You Know?

The Internal Revenue Service issued a nationwide alert for more than 90,000 taxpayers who haven't received tax refund checks. These unclaimed refunds total more than $64 million. There are many reasons why these refund checks don't always reach taxpayers. The IRS reports incorrect addresses as the big culprit. A death or marriage may also result in a returned check. There is no statute of limitations for claiming these refunds, so if you think the IRS owes you money, call the toll-free assistance line at (800) 829-1040 (good luck getting through quickly).

Three Reasons to E-file Your Taxes

  • ACCURACY Electronically filed tax returns are more likely to be accepted as filed than paper ones due to various computer checks conducted prior to the return's transmission.
  • FASTER REFUND Refunds on electronically filed returns are generally disbursed within two to three weeks.
  • FILE NOW - PAY LATER A "balance due" return -- where the taxpayer owes money -- may also be electronically filed.

See you soon,
