Unclaimed IRS Refund Database Allows for Quick, Simple Searching

I have seen state unclaimed fund databases before, but I didn’t remember this resource from the National Taxpayers Union, which is currently in its tenth year. This is a simple search that allows you to do fast searching across the whole US – though the years available are somewhat limited. Start your search at http://www.ntu.org/tax-basics/does-irs-owe-you-money/.

The search is simple: last name, state, and year (unfortunately you can only do searches for 2008 and 2009.) A search returns taxpayers in order of state with first and last name, city, state, and zip code. All the ones I saw said “(Tax Refund Available)” but there might be some other notation.

You don’t make contact via the NTU if you happened to be listed here; instead the site gives an 800-number that you can use to call the IRS for more information.

Easy to use, fast results. Good luck in your search.
