Thousands of Iowans -didn’t- file federal tax returns in the year 2000 and the I-R-S is looking for them. Not to prosecute, but to give them money. I-R-S spokeswoman Donna Migazzi says many Iowans who didn’t file returns should have done so, because they’re due refunds.Migazzi says 17-thousand-700 Iowans still need to file their 2000 tax returns to claim refunds totaling 14-point-7 million dollars. About half of those returns are worth 516-dollars, on average. She explains what sorts of people typically didn’t file a return, but still have money coming to them.Generally, it’s people who aren’t required to file a tax return because their income is so low, they don’t have to — ranging from lower-income wage earners to students, perhaps just working summer jobs. Still they have money taken from their checks and likely would need to get it back.Migazzi says if you don’t recall whether you filed a return in 2000, call the I-R-S and they can let you know — and tell you whether you still have some money coming. Call 800 TAX-1040. Nationwide, the I-R-S has more than two-point-five billion dollars it could refund to nearly two-million taxpayers who did not file a 2000 return.
