Unclaimed 2020 IRS Refunds Deadline

Unclaimed IRS refunds refer to money that is owed to taxpayers by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) but has not been claimed. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as incorrect mailing addresses, changes in phone numbers, or simply overlooking the refund.

The IRS has issued a reminder that time is running out to claim your 2020 tax refund if you did not file a 2020 federal return. The deadline to file a 2020 IRS return and claim your refund is May 17, 2024. Filing a missed 2020 return may also qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Recovery Rebate Credit or other credits if you meet the requirements.

By law, there is a limited three year window to claim a refund. After that date, unclaimed 2020 federal tax refunds will become the property of the U.S. Treasury.
