Unclaimed refunds totaling more than $18 million are await- ing 18,000 Kentuckians who failed to file a 1998 income tax return, the Internal Revenue Service has announced. How- ever, in order to collect the money, a return must be filed with the IRS office no later than April 15, 2002. rime is running out for indi- viduals to take steps to claim this money," said IRS spokes- woman Pat Brummer. "If not return is filed to claim the refund within three years, then this money will become the property of the U.S. Treasury." The IRS estimates that the median refund amount for those Kentucky residents is $491. Some individuals has too little income to require filing a tax re- turn, but may have had taxes withheld from their wages. Oth- ers may not have had any tax withheld, but would be eligible for the refundable Earned In- come Tax Credit. In cases where a return was not filed, the law provides most taxpayers with a three-year win- dow of opportunity for claiming a refund. For 1998 returns, the window closes on April 15, 2002. The law requires that these re- turns be properly addressed, postmarked, and mailed by that date. There is no penalty as- sessed by the IRS for filing a late return qualifying for a refund. The IRS reminds taxpayers seeking a 1998 refund that their checks will be held if they have not filed tax returns for 1999 or 2000. In addition, the refund will be applied to any amounts still owed to the IRS and may be used to satisfy unpaid child sup- port or past due federal debts, such as student loans. Current and prior tax forms are available on the IRS Web site ( or by calling 1- 800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829- 3676). Taxpayers who need help preparing prior year returns or gathering income records may call the IRS help line at 1-800- 829-1040. To allow time for pro- cessing, forms and]or tax help should be requested by mid- March. The name of Nathan P. Smith was leR out of last week's Ohio County Middle School honor roll.
