The IRS can reissue the checks, which average $765, after taxpayers correct or update their addresses with the IRS.
In some cases, a taxpayer has more than one check waiting.
Nationally, there are 115,478 taxpayers with undeliverable refunds, totaling about $110 million with an average refund of $953. "Hoosier taxpayers should not miss out on getting their money back," said IRS Spokesperson Jodie Reynolds. "The IRS makes it as easy as possible for taxpayers to update their addresses and claim their refunds."
The '"Wheres My Refund?" tool on http//.www.IRS.gov enables taxpayers to check the status of their refunds.
A taxpayer must submit his or her social security number, filing status and amount of refund shown on their 2006 return. The tool will provide the status of their refund and in some cases provide instructions on how to resolve delivery problems. Taxpayers can access a telephone version of "Where's My Refund?" by calling 1-800-829-1954.
