The IRS released figures that show that 8,000 New Jersey taxpayers have not claimed $31,185 in Federal tax refunds due on 2008 tax returns. The average refund is $716. The deadline for filing to receive these refunds is April 17, 2012. After that, they are gone forever. If you have not filed and may be due a refund, I can help you gather the necessary info to file, even if you do not have all of your paperwork from that year.
