$917M in unclaimed 2009 tax refunds

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - If you didn't file your federal tax return for 2009, you could be missing out on a refund.

The Internal Revenue Service says it has $917 million dollars in unclaimed tax refunds from 2009.  More than 984,000 taxpayers haven't submitted returns for that year.

The IRS estimates roughly half of the unclaimed refunds amount to more than $500 dollars per person. Time is running out to claim the cash. 2009 tax returns must be submitted by April 15th of this year.

If you miss that deadline, your money will be handed over to the U.S. Treasury. You will not have to pay a late filing penalty if you are indeed owed a refund.
