IRS says $1.5 billion in tax refunds remain unclaimed. Here’s what to know.

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- You could have some money coming to you... but you'll need to act quickly.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is trying to track down one and a half million people who are owed their share of unclaimed tax refunds.

That's one and a half billion dollars worth of refunds from income tax year 2019.

The IRS is letting people know, if you think you're owed, you have until July 17th to submit a tax return to claim your refund.

If you don't make the deadline, the government keeps the money.

Normally, filing after the April deadline comes with penalties, but because of the pandemic, the IRS extended the deadline for 2019 income taxes over three years to July 2023.
