I lost my income tax refund check. How can I get my money?
New York City
Fortunately, you have several options. You can call the Internal Revenue Service at 800-8294954 and speak to one of its agents or use the automated system, unless you filed "married filing jointly," in which case you'll need to complete form 3911, also known as Taxpayer Statement Regarding Refund (www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f3911. pdf). According to its Website, the IRS can often issue a new check to you within six to eight weeks, provided that the check was not cashed. If the check was cashed by someone, you'll need to complete a claim package and, possibly, form 3911.
If your refund never arrived, you can get assistance at the "Where's My Refund?" section of the IRS Website. Tracing service is available to tilers who have not received a refund within 28 days from the mailing date posted on the "Where's My Refund?" section of the site. General information about your refund status is available 72 hours after filing a return electronically and three to four weeks after mailing a paper return.
