Are you on the list? IRS owes money to 81 SLO County residents

Five hundred people on the Central Coast - 81 in San Luis Obispo County - are in the unusual position of having the Internal Revenue Service owe them money.

“(It’s) not exactly man bites dog, but we really do want to return $456,000 in undelivered refunds to 532 Central Coast taxpayers as quickly as possible,” said Jesse Weller of IRS media relations in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Central Coast to the IRS includes San Benito, Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties.

Collectively, the San Luis Obispo County residents on the list are owed $59,000.

Nationwide, the IRS is looking to return $164.6 million in undelivered refund checks.

“A total of 111,893 taxpayers are due one or more refund checks that could not be delivered because of mailing address errors,” Weller wrote.

“Our main goal is to help people get the money owed them as quickly as possible,” said Weller. “Those who are missing a refund should update their address with the IRS. That’s all that needs to be done in most cases.”

Weller said the IRS cannot publish the names on its own website, but can give them to the media to publish. See the list of names below, which does not include the amount by individual.

The best way for a taxpayer to verify whether he or she has a pending refund is going directly to http://www.irs.gov and using the “Where’s My Refund?” tool.

Weller said that undelivered refund checks average $1,471 this year, compared to $1,148 last year, with some taxpayers due more than one check.

“The average dollar amount for returned refunds rose by just over 28 percent this year, possibly due to recent changes in tax law which introduced new credits or expanded existing credits, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit,” he wrote.

If a refund check is returned to the IRS as undelivered, taxpayers can generally update their addresses with the “Where’s My Refund?” tool on IRS.gov.

The tool also enables a taxpayer to check the status of his or her refund by submitting his or her Social Security number, filing status and amount of refund shown on their 2009 return. The tool will provide the refund status, and in some cases, instructions on how to resolve delivery problems.

The telephone version of “Where’s My Refund?” may be used by calling 1-800-829-1954.

Weller said the public should be aware that the IRS does not contact taxpayers by e-mail to alert them of pending refunds and that such messages are common identity theft scams. The agency urges taxpayers not to release any personal information, reply, open any attachments or click on any links to avoid malicious code that will infect their computers.
