Protecting SNAP and Medicaid Recipients

According to CNET the IRS owes a huge $1 billion in refunds to about 940,000 taxpayers from 2021. On average each person is owed $932. These refunds include money for the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit. This shows that many people might have missed out on a lot of money because they didn’t file taxes or didn’t realize they could get a refund. The IRS usually keeps unclaimed refunds for three years before giving the money to the US Treasury. That means people have until May 17, 2024 to get back any money they missed from 2020.
