$44 million in Unclaimed Tax in North Carolina

Many states across the country are now urging eligible residents and taxpayers to claim their part of the unclaimed tax. Recently, a nonprofit organization Pisgah Legal Services urged the taxpayers in North Carolina to claim their part of the $44 million in unclaimed tax.

In a published article in ABC13 News, taxpayers have until July 17 to file a 2019 tax return to claim their refund. Following this, the Internal Revenue Service will stop issuing 2019 tax year refunds.

Nonprofit Organization Wants to Help Taxpayers

According to a published article in ABC45, Pisgah Legal Services Chief Operating Officer Jaclyn Kiger said in a news release on Monday, “Pisgah Legal Services wants to help people in our mountains that have lower incomes access tax refunds and credits they are due.”

They also added, “Not only are we assisting those who didn’t file in 2019, you may also have funds waiting for you from more recent years if you haven’t filed a tax return in 2020, 2021, or 2022, especially if you have children. Ultimately, it’s up to you to file or not, there is no pressure, and our services are completely confidential”

However, you must make less than $60,000 a year and live within the 18-county region of WNC to qualify for free tax services with Pisgah Legal Services.
