The IRS is still holding checks for hundreds of Iowans — checks that were returned to the agency by the post office as undeliverable. IRS spokeswoman Donna Migazzi says the deadline is today (Friday) to claim them. Some 571 advance child tax credit checks were mailed to Iowa taxpayers this summer and were returned to the IRS as undeliverable, usually because the person had moved. Migazzi says some of the checks are worth a bundle. They range from around $10 to over $1900 and total $265,000 that Iowans need to claim. Migazzi says Iowans who think they may be missing a check or two from the IRS can check quickly online. The IRS website at “irs.gov” enables taxpayers to check on their possible check, or people can call the agency at 800-TAX-1040. Migazzi says taxpayers who want the advance child tax credit payment must update their addresses by December 5 so the checks can be reissued before December 31.
