Washington (Oct. 28, 2003) -- Internal Revenue Service commissioner Mark W. Everson reminds taxpayers they have until Dec. 5 to claim 115,744 undelivered checks from this summer’s advance child tax credit. After the December cut-off, taxpayers cannot claim the checks until they file their tax returns next year.

These undelivered checks are among nearly 24 million issued this summer and fall for the advance child tax credit. In all, more than $14 billion in child credit checks have been issued. “Time is running out to get an advance child credit check,” Everson said. “All we need is a good address. As soon as we get the correct address we can start the check on its way. We urge taxpayers to act before Dec. 5 for the advance payments so we can reissue the checks before the end of the year.”
