SHAHEEN ENCOURAGES TAXPAYERS WITH MISSING REFUNDS TO CHECK WITH IRS

December 14, 2011

(Washington, DC) – Taxpayers who were expecting a refund this year on their federal income taxes and haven’t yet received one are encouraged to use an online tool to help find information, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s office announced today. The “Where's My Refund?” tool can be found on Shaheen’s website: http://shaheen.senate.gov/. Information on this year’s refunds will only be accessible for a few more weeks.

“The ‘Where’s My Refund?’ tool from the IRS is a convenient way for people to check on the status of tax refunds,” Shaheen said. “I encourage anyone who is missing an expected refund check to consult this site soon in order to get back money that is owed.”

For U.S. Individual Income Tax Returns filed before July 1, refund information will remain available on “Where’s My Refund?” until around the second or third week in December. For tax returns filed on or after July 1, refund information will remain available throughout the following year until a new tax return is filed.

If you need more information, contact IRS customer service by calling 1-800-829-1040.
