Does the IRS owe you money?

Staff report

Several Carson City and Dayton taxpayers have not received their income tax refund checks, which average $1,300 each.

Statewide there are 481 Nevadans who are missing income tax returns, totaling more than $1.9 million. The checks can be reissued when the IRS receives a correct or updated address.

Nationally, more than 95,000 taxpayers are owed $92 million, and in some cases, a taxpayer has more than one check waiting.

Taxpayers can inform the IRS of their correct address by filing Form 8822, Change of Address; or by calling 1-800-829-1040. Form 8822 can be found at or by calling 1-800-829-3676.

The best way to avoid being on the undeliverable list in the future is to use direct deposit, according to the IRS. Direct deposit guards against theft or lost refund checks and is available for both paper and electronic returns. Use of direct deposit was up 8 percent this year from last year. About 57 million taxpayers chose it over a paper check.
