Undelivered Refunds - 2011 Podcast text script

HI… I’M MICHELLE AND I WORK FOR THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE.
    
DID YOU KNOW THAT THE I-R-S HAS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN TAX REFUNDS THAT CAN’T BE DELIVERED TO TAXPAYERS? 
    
THIS HAPPENS EVERY YEAR AND, YES…MILLIONS!
    
SOMETIMES A TAXPAYER MOVES AND FORGETS TO TELL THE POST OFFICE….OR THE I-R-S.
    
SOMETIMES THE ADDRESS ON THE TAX RETURN IS WRONG … OR INCOMPLETE. 
    
WHATEVER THE REASON …. THE POSTAL SERVICE RETURNS THESE CHECKS TO THE I-R-S AS UNDELIVERED. 
    
ARE YOU MISSING YOUR REFUND? 
   
IF SO… GO TO I-R-S-DOT-GOV AND USE THE “WHERE’S MY REFUND?” TOOL.
    
OR YOU CAN CALL 1-800-TAX-19-54.
    
THAT’S 1-800-8-2-9-1-9-5-4.
    
AND NEXT YEAR …. BE SURE TO USE DIRECT DEPOSIT.
    
THAT WAY YOU’LL AVOID AN UNDELIVERED REFUND AND GET YOUR MONEY FASTER.
 
AGAIN… FOR MORE INFORMATION… GO TO W-W-W-DOT-I-R-S-DOT-GOV.
