The Internal Revenue Service has checks available for at least five Butler County residents, according to Dan Boone, IRS Media Specialist.

Those with checks are: Michael and Jessica L. Harris of Georgiana, Cherylene Winslow of Greenville, Brian Paulk of Greenville, Ladeirdra Bullock of Greenville, and Reid Burkett of Greenville.

“IRS wants to get these checks to their owners as quickly as possible,” said Boone. “All you have to do is update your address to get your refund check reissued.”

All a taxpayer has to do is update his or her address once. The IRS will then send out all checks due. Undeliverable refund checks average $1,183 this year in Alabama. Some taxpayers are due more than one check.

Nationwide, the IRS wants to reissue nearly 108,000 checks worth more than $123 million.

The average check is worth $1,148. – Special to The Advocate
