Are You Due A Tax Refund?

Are you one of the 7,200 Hawaii residents that is owed money from the IRS?

If you did not file a tax return for 2013, 2014 or 2015, you may be entitled to a piece of the $7.5 million dollars held for Hawaii families. The average refund amount is about $600.

Here’s the thing, the IRS only gives you 3 years to file a return to claim a refund. After that the money becomes the property of the U.S. Treasury.

If you did not file a return for 2013, 2014 or 2015, and think you may qualify for a refund, get the tax forms you need by going to IRS.gov and search for Forms and Publications. Or you can call 1-800-TAX-FORM.

Also be sure to check to see if you qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit. You can use the IRS “EITC Assistant” at this web page.

Based on your income, marital status and the status of your children, your Earned Income Tax Credit for tax year 2015 could be worth as much as $6,242.
