JUNEAU - The Internal Revenue Service seeks Alaska taxpayers to whom it owes money.
The U.S. Postal Service returned to the IRS some 977 economic stimulus checks and 411 regular tax refunds that were delivered to the wrong address.
The money totals more than $1 million. The economic stimulus checks average $622 each, and the refunds average $974 each.
Taxpayers need only update their addresses once, and the IRS will send out all checks due.
For an economic stimulus check, addresses must be changed by Nov. 28, because the IRS must send out checks by Dec. 31 this year.
Regular tax refunds don't have that deadline, and will be sent as soon as citizens update their addresses.
Change your address with the "Where's my refund?" tool on IRS.gov. There, you can also check the status of refunds and get instructions on how to resolve delivery problems. Or update your address on the phone: 1-800-829-1954.
