If you didn't file in 2008, you may have a check waiting for you.

Just why and how did this happen? Many people probably didn't think they made enough money that year to bother filing. But, no matter how much you made, if you had taxes withheld from your checks, then you are owed back the money.
If you think you fall into this category, you have to act fast. If you don't file your claim by April 17, the money officially becomes property of the U.S. Treasury. Don't they have enough of your bread already? Go get what's yours!
Now, for those of you that already owe Uncle Sam some back taxes, whatever amount that is currently waiting to be claimed by you, will go directly to your debt. Hey, can't miss what you never had right?
