IRS has $153M in undelivered tax refunds

WASHINGTON (AP) - December 1, 2011

It's an annual exercise for the IRS, which has been nudging taxpayers toward accepting their refunds through direct, electronic deposits to their bank accounts. Out of the nearly 103 million refunds the IRS issued through early June this year, 76 million were direct deposits.

Of those delivered by the mail, about 0.3 percent bounced back to the IRS because of return address problems.
