Utah tax payers are owed millions of dollars by the government

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – You may be busy filing your 2013 taxes -- but did you file your 2010 taxes?

If not, you’re in luck. Don Jex is an Enrolled Agent with Don Jex & Associates. He said he has been busy with 2013 tax returns but there is more money to be had.

“These are funds that right now, as of this day, the Internal Revenue Service has the responsibility of getting that money back to the individual that it is due to,” said Jex.

The IRS announced that they have $760 Million dollars for people who did not file across the country.

In Utah, over 6,000 people did not file. That’s a total of $518 dollars per person totaling $4.7 million

“These returns have to be paper filed. In other words, they have to be stamped and post marked in the mail by midnight April 15 in order for those returns to be qualified for the money,” Jex added.

If they are not done by then, the government will absorb the funds. It’s something some taxpayers believe the government needs to better inform people.

“I think the government needs to do a better job of notifying those people some how, either in writing or some way to let them know that those funds are available because they should get it back,” said Marlo Othorup.
