More than 1,000 Wisconsin residents still have not received a tax refund because the refunds could not be delivered via mail according to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report today. See The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Data on Demand page to search records for all counties in Wisconsin.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report,
"A refund check is normally returned as undeliverable when a taxpayer moves without updating his or her address with either the U.S. Postal Service or the IRS," said Christopher Miller, IRS spokesman in Milwaukee. He suggests using direct deposit to a bank account as a way to avoid the problem.
To check the status of a refund, a taxpayer can use the "Where’s My Refund?" tool on IRS.gov or by calling 1-800-829-1954
I remember getting my refund – but hey, I checked anyway. You never know what you may find.
