GOFFSTOWN - The Internal Revenue Service is trying to track down hundreds of New Hampshire taxpayers to give them money.
Nine of them are current or former residents of
IRS officials said the agency has more than 800 economic stimulus checks totaling more than $490,000 and nearly 300 regular refund checks totaling more than $200,000 that were returned because of mailing address errors.
"We want New Hampshire taxpayers to get this money as soon as possible," said IRS spokeswoman Peggy Riley.
Riley said taxpayers who believe they're missing a stimulus check or refund should check
IRS.gov. Once a taxpayer updates his or her address, the IRS will send any checks due to that address.
It's important that anyone missing a stimulus check update his or her address by Nov. 28 because, by law, all stimulus checks must be sent by Dec. 31. In addition to using the Web site, people who think they are missing a stimulus check can call 866-234-2942.
For regular refunds, taxpayers can use IRS.gov or call 800-829-1954 to update their address. The IRS said the refund checks it was unable to deliver average $748.
The IRS recommended that any taxpayers who are unsure whether they are owed a stimulus check or a refund should check on the stimulus payment first because of the looming deadline.
