Louisianians could lose $21M in unclaimed IRS tax refunds

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Federal income tax refunds totaling more than $21 million could be lost by about 22,000 Louisiana taxpayers who did not file a federal income tax return for 2011.

The law provides most taxpayers with a three-year window of opportunity for claiming a refund. To collect the money, the agency says these taxpayers must file a 2011 tax return with the Internal Revenue Service postmarked no later than April 15.

The Advocate reports the median refund is $693.
