More than 4,000 uncashed Idaho tax refund checks about to expire

The Spokesman-ReviewJune 5, 2014 

More than 4,000 uncashed state tax refund checks will expire June 27, the Idaho Tax Commission warns, and it's urging the taxpayers involved get on it.

After the expiration date, the refunds — which total more than $1 million — will become unclaimed property. At that point, the owners would have to file a claims request through the state Treasurer's Office to get their money.

The checks in question were issued from July 2012 to June 2013. The Tax Commission says it has sent letters to the taxpayers who got the checks.

Checks will need to be reissued if they're more than a year old. Those who have lost their checks can request replacements.

For more information, call the Tax Commission at 334-7660 in the Boise area or toll free at (800) 972-7660.
