IRS seeks to return $266 million in undeliverable refunds and economic stimulus payments to taxpayers [IR 2008-123]:

More than 383,000 regular refund and economic stimulus checks have been returned by the U.S. Postal Service as undeliverable, IRS said on Oct. 23. This figure included 279,000 economic stimulus checks totaling $163 million and 104,000 regular refund checks totaling $103 million.

The problem is more urgent for those who have not received their economic stimulus checks which, by law, must be sent out by Dec. 31, IRS said. The agency is urging individuals who have not received the stimulus payment to check on the status of their payment immediately and, if necessary, update their addresses by Nov. 28.

This can be done by going to the “Where’s My Stimulus Payment?” tool on the IRS Web site at https://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=181665,00.html .

Individuals without Internet access should call (866) 234-2942.

Taxpayers who have not received their refund can check on its status by going to the “Where’s My Refund?” tool at https://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=96596,00.html .

Telephone inquiries can be made by calling (800) 829-1954.

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.

Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.

I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
