The Philadelphia Business Journal has an interesting posting today about the Internal Revenue Service looking to refund $2.7 million to Pennsylvania residents.
I've heard of the IRS going after people to get money, but whoever heard of the IRS trying to find people to give money back to?
Nearly 3,265 Pennsylvania taxpayers are due more than $2.7 million, or an average of $826 statewide, according to the article. The IRS is trying to return more than $110 million in refunds nationwide.
I already checked. I'm not on the list.
Taxpayers who think the IRS owes them some money are directed to the "Where's My Refund?" tool at www.irs.gov to check the status of refunds.
