Refunds Awaiting Nearly 2,100 North Dakotans

The Internal Revenue Service says refunds totaling nearly $1.9 million are awaiting nearly 2,100 North Dakotans who did not file a federal income tax return for 2006.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Internal Revenue Service says refunds

totaling nearly $1.9 million are awaiting nearly 2,100 North

Dakotans who did not file a federal income tax return for 2006.

To collect the money, those due refunds have until April 15 to

file a 2006 return.

The IRS estimates that half of the North Dakotans who could file

and claim a refund for tax year 2006 would receive at least $589.

In cases where a return was not filed, the law gives most

taxpayers a three-year window of opportunity for claiming a refund.

If no return is filed in that time span, the government keeps the

money.

Checks for taxpayers seeking a 2006 refund will be held if they

have not filed returns for 2007 or 2008.
