If you didn’t file a 2017 tax return, you may have money waiting for you. Keep reading to learn more and discover what steps you need to take to get your unclaimed 2017 tax refunds.
What You Need to Know
According to official estimates, some 1.3 million taxpayers didn’t file a 2017 tax return and are due a refund.
To get your unclaimed 2017 tax refund, the first thing you should do is to file your 2017 return with the IRS before this year’s due date, which is Monday, May 17.
The unclaimed funds will be applied to any amount you owe to the IRS or a state tax agency. The money can be used as well to offset unpaid child support or past due federal debts, such as student loans.
What You Need to Keep in Mind
It’s worth keeping in mind that not filing a 2017 tax return might mean losing more than just your refund. For example, a lot of people may qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EIC), which in 2017 was worth up to $6,318.
To file your 2017 tax return, you will need Forms W-2, 1098, 1099, or 5498. Contact your employer, bank, or other payers to get copies of these documents. If you can’t obtain them, don’t worry: you can request a transcription online to the IRS and use that information to file your 2017 tax return.
