The Internal Revenue Service is looking for about 112,000 people who are due a combined total of $164.6 million in tax refunds. The tax agency said the average refund check was about 28% larger than it was a year ago.

The refund checks, which haven't been delivered because of mailing-address errors, average $1,471, up from $1,148 last year, the IRS said in a statement Wednesday.

The IRS said taxpayers can eliminate mailing delays and errors by using direct-deposit services.

Taxpayers who may be missing their refund checks can access the "Where's My Refund" section on the IRS website or call 1-800-829-1954.

And, while you're working on the Fair Tax change, look up (and put a stop to) "S 510". If it isn't stopped, we won't have food without government approval.

we need a Fair Tax (HR25/S296) to replace (not in addition to) the current tax code which rewards or punishes people at the whim of both parties in Congress. a fair tax would have no loopholes, no deductions, no filing, no withholding, and NO SOCIAL ENGINEERING by congress! this is the only way to take the power and money away from Washington!
