I'm not sure if you've heard, but the IRS has about $2.2 billion in unclaimed tax-refund money for 2003. There are missing filers in every U.S. state, all U.S. possessions, and in all military services. California ranks #1 among all the non-filing residents with approximately 200,000 for the year 2003.
They've also found that New Hampshire tax filers are most likely to get the largest refund, where the median refund is $709. The biggest potential for even a larger refund are the folks in the military who could be banking about $785 each. They still have the chance if they get their forms in by the April 17th deadline of this year.
This is their last chance, any longer and they could forfeit a refund that belongs to them. My home state of New Jersey had about 56,500 non-filers with the potential of about $690 to be received. I wasn't part of that group, and by the look of my taxes this year, I'm going to actually be paying! Check out how much your states non-filers could be making for 2003, click the pic on the left.
