  * Many people also have unclaimed money which the IRS is holding because they did not file taxes when they were not legally required to. For example, if you had a job but your earnings were low enough that you were not required to file a return, you probably had taxes that were withheld from each paycheck. This money would have gone to the government and, without filing a return, you never triggered those funds to be returned to you. In addition, you may have earned too little to require that you file taxes, but enough so that you would have been entitled to the earned income tax credit.   * Many people also have unclaimed money which the IRS is holding because they did not file taxes when they were not legally required to.

  * For the year 2011 alone the IRS had $1 billion in unclaimed tax refunds — but April 2015 was the last date that the money could be claimed. We don’t know what happens to those funds but unfortunately it probably doesn’t get distributed to taxpayers! If you don’t bother filing a return because you don’t expect to owe anything because of your low income, you could be missing out on as much as $5000 or more in the Earned Income Tax Credit.  It’s too late now for 2011 but if you have some income it could be a very good idea to file late returns for 2012 - 2014.   * For the year 2011 alone the IRS had $1 billion in unclaimed tax refunds — but April 2015 was the last date that the money could be claimed.
