More than 4,000 W.Va. Taxpayers Could Be Owed 2010 Refunds


The Internal Revenue Service says more than $3 million in federal income tax refunds for 2010 haven’t been claimed in West Virginia.
The IRS estimates 4,100 taxpayers in the state could be owed refunds.
Half of the potential refunds are estimated at $626.
The IRS says in a news release that some people might not have been required to file tax returns because they didn’t earn enough income. Taxes were still withheld from their wages, or quarterly estimated payments were made.
     Taxpayers must file a return for 2010 no later than April 15 in order to collect the refunds.
     The IRS says refunds might be held if these taxpayers also haven’t filed returns for 2011 and 2012.
