Did you know that the IRS is reporting that there is $917 million in unclaimed refunds for folks who have not filed their 2009 taxes?  Wow! That is a lot of money and this happens every year.  

The IRS places an expiration date on refunds owed to tax payers.  The taxpayer has 3 years to claim their tax refund from the date that the return was due for filing.  Many people never file, so they miss out on their right to receiving their refund.  The deadline for 2009 is 04/15/2013.  Let's get those 2009 returns filed!!!
