IRS searching for Hawaii taxpayers who are owed refunds

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - You could be owed hundreds of dollars from the IRS.

The agency says that 735 Hawaii residents are due a total of $739,000 in refunds, but it can't find them.

The 2010 refunds average $1,033 apiece.

The IRS says the checks were returned as undeliverable.

Taxpayers can visit the "Where's My Refund?" tool on the IRS website to update their address or check on the status of their refund. You can also call 800-829-1954.
