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.
