INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana's NewsCenter) – The IRS is reporting that 1,374 Indiana taxpayer refund checks were returned to the IRS because of mailing address errors.
The checks average $1,124, but taxpayers must correct or update their addresses with the IRS.
Some taxpayers are due more than one check. A taxpayer only needs to update his or her address once for the IRS to send out all checks due.
If a refund check is returned to the IRS as undelivered, taxpayers can generally update their addresses with the "Where's My Refund?" tool found on the IRS website.
Taxpayers checking on a refund over the phone will receive instructions on how to update their addresses. Taxpayers can access a telephone version of "Where's My Refund?" by calling 1-800-829-1954.
The IRS does not contact taxpayers by e-mail to alert them of pending refunds and that such messages are common identity theft scams.
In Allen County some 67 taxpayers could see an average refund of $1,833.
