The other day, Jack's Top Ten List was about questionable tax deductions. Of course, doing taxes is no fun, but getting the refunds is a high point of this time of year. But what if you're owed a refund from a PAST tax year? Then fill out those forms and GET IT!
If you didn't file your taxes for 2009 and you're owed a refund, time is running out for you to get it. You only have until April 15, 2013 to file those 2009 tax forms to claim your money. The IRS has over $900 million in unclaimed refunds for tax year 2009. And about half of those refunds are estimated at $500 or more. So...if you're owed a refund, file those old taxes to make sure you get your refund. The clock is ticking!
