Haven't gotten your stimulus check? It could be that the IRS doesn't have the correct address for you.
The IRS is holding more than 4,200 economic stimulus checks belonging to Marylanders that the U.S. Postal Service returned to the agency as undeliverable because of address errors. The checks are worth more than $2.5 million.
On top of that, more than 1,500 regular refund checks totaling more than $1.5 million have also been returned to the IRS.
That's more than $4 million dollars waiting for taxpayers to claim. (Check back on this site tomorrow and we will have the names of everyone who is due either a refund or a rebate.)
You need to update your address with the IRS by Nov. 28th if you want to get your stimulus check this year. You can do so, by going to the IRS Web site and using the tool for correcting your address.
If you know people who don't have Internet access but haven't gotten their check, tell them to call 1-866-234-2942.
You can update your address for your regular fund online also. The site allows you to check on the status of your refund. You will need to include your Social Security number, filing status and the size of the refund listed on your 2007 return. To check on your refund over the phone and find out how to update your address, call 1-800-829-1954.
If you're not sure whether Uncle Sam owes you a stimulus check or a refund, check on the tax rebate first, the IRS says. The agency has until the end of the year to mail out the stimulus checks and the deadline is fast approaching.
As of the end of September, the IRS disbursed 116 million stimulus checks and 279,000 have been returned as undeliverable. More than 105 million regular refunds have gone out, and 104,000 have been undeliverable.
