MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter says an estimated 3,800 people in New Hampshire are owed more than $3 million in unclaimed tax refunds.

To collect the refund, people who did not file a tax return for 2010 must file one with the IRS no later than Tuesday.

The Internal Revenue Service estimates the 3,800 people in New Hampshire did not file a federal income tax return for 2010 and are owed a median refund of $602. The total in unclaimed refunds is $3,245,000.

Shea-Porter says some people may not have filed because they had too little income to require filing even though they had taxes withheld or made quarterly estimated payments. In most cases, taxpayers have three years to claim a refund or the money goes to the U.S. Treasury.
