IRS seeking Alabamians for more than $4 million

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Internal Revenue Service has more than $4 million it wants to distribute in Alabama.

But it can't find the people who are supposed to receive it.

IRS spokesman Dan Boone said more than 5,300 economic stimulus checks and more than 1,500 regular tax refund checks were returned by the U.S. Postal Service due to mailing address errors in Alabama.

The IRS says all taxpayers have to do is update their addresses and they will get their money.

There's a deadline of Nov. 28 to update an address to receive an economic stimulus check.

Taxpayers can update their addresses on the IRS Web site ( ) or by calling 1-800-829-1954 for regular tax returns and 1-866-234-2942 for economic stimulus checks.
