The IRS said today itâ€™s holding $1 billion in unclaimed tax refunds, owed to people who didnâ€™t file a return in 2008. I guess the good news is that, if those taxpayers donâ€™t claim the money â€” they have until April 17 this year to do so â€” then thatâ€™s some revenue the government can use, to avoid cutting programs, or maybe to shore up Social Security and Medicare. Itâ€™s basically a drop in the bucket, but every little bit helps, right?
That said, if the money is yours, go get it! Find out more on this IRS page.
