Albany-- The Internal Revenue Service is looking for more than 115,000 people. If you're one of them, you want to be found.
Right now, the IRS has refund checks for 115,478 taxpayers it can't find. $110 million worth of refunds were returned as undeliverable. About 4,000 of those checks belong to Georgians.
Clifton Bush with H&R Block says the main reason people don't get their refunds is because they move after filing. He says you can avoid a tax-refund mix-up.
"One thing is they can file electronically and do direct deposit into a checking account or savings account. They can also file for a change of address once they do move," said Bush.
The average check is $953. Some people have more than one check waiting. To see if you're one of them, visit www.irs.gov and click on "Where's My Refund?"
You can also call 1-800-829-1040 or 1-800-829-1954. You may also fill out form 8822 which can be found online.
