BOSTON, Mass. -- Refunds totaling nearly $51 million may be waiting for an estimated 57,400 New York tax payers who did not file a federal income tax return for 2010.
To collect their money, a return for 2010 must be filed with the IRS no later than Tuesday, April 15, 2014.
"The window is quickly closing for people who are owed refunds from 2010 who haven't filed a tax return. We encourage students, part-time workers and others who haven't filed for 2010 to look into this before time runs out on April 15," said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.
The IRS reminds taxpayers seeking a 2010 refund that their checks may be held if they have not filed tax returns for 2011 and 2012. By failing to file a return, people stand to lose more than just their refund of taxes withheld or paid during 2010.
Current and prior year tax forms and instructions are available on the Forms and Publications page of IRS.gov or by calling toll-free 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).
