Did you know that there is currently more than $1.3 Billion in IRS unclaimed tax money?
It’s true, and it belongs to over 1.3 million tax payers that did not file for a refund. There is a three year deadline, which really equates to a four year gap, between filing your money and losing it to the government.
Unlike unclaimed state money which is held in perpetuity until it is claimed by it’s owner, IRS unclaimed tax money goes back to the government if it is not claimed.
I say there is actually a four year gap, because if you didn’t file your tax return in 2006, you have until April 15th of 2010 to file it.
If you didn’t file your tax return in 2007, you have until 2011. No return in 2008, you have until 2012, etc., etc.
So, just as the above newscast from 2011 mentions unclaimed tax money from 2007, a similar story run in 2012 would talk about unclaimed tax money in 2008.
The IRS has forms available to file for prior years.
Just go to the IRS prior years filing page and download the form(s) you need.
If you do not file and are owed money, there is no penalty, but you lose out on getting money that is rightfully yours.
If you feel like you filed already and are missing your refund or feel that you are due a refund for any other reason, please go to the Where’s My Refund? page for more information.
The video at the top of the page is from 2010. The video directly below is from 2013.
As you can see, the years go by, but nothing changes!
Did you know that billions of dollars go unclaimed every year? Not just with the IRS, but with the states by pension funds, insurance companies, even utility deposits. Millions of people have unclaimed money owed to them that don’t even know about it.
Did you know that there are people out there making money off this unclaimed money?
They’re called unclaimed money finders. All they do is get a list of people that have money being held for them, have them sign an agreement that they will pay commission on any money that the finder returns, and then help file the paperwork. Most of them work out of their house. It’s probably the easiest home business opportunity you can think of.
Please take a look at the opportunity page if you think you would be interested in becoming an unclaimed money finder.
