IRS Refunds 

The Internal Revenue Service is trying to

track down more than 300 Maine taxpayers with unclaimed refund


The IRS said the uncollected refunds total $213,000, or an

average of $680 apiece. Most are for 2006, although some date back

to earlier years.

Agency spokeswoman Peggy O’Riley said the refund checks were

mailed out, but the post office returned them as undeliverable. In

most instances, the taxpayer moved and left no forwarding address.

The IRS this week released the list of the taxpayers who are

owed money and urged them to contact the agency.
