Dude, where's my stimulus check?
In harsh economic times, the thought of "forgetting" your stimulus check is beyond us, but some 2,700 Minnesotans have done just that.
The checks total $1.5 million and the Internal Revenue Service is also looking for nearly 1,300 people who didn't receive their regular refund checks totaling $1 million. These checks were returned by the U.S. Postal Service due to mailing address errors.
According to KSTP:
All a taxpayer has to do is update his or her address once. The IRS will then send out all checks due.
It is crucial that taxpayers who may be due a stimulus check update their addresses with the IRS by Nov. 28, 2008.
By law, economic stimulus checks must be sent out by Dec. 31 of this year. The undeliverable economic stimulus checks average $560 in Minnesota.
