HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - More than 25,000 business and individual taxpayers are receiving letters from state tax officials reminding them of forgotten refunds.

Taxpayers have until March 1 to claim more than $6.5 million in refunds before the money is transferred to the state Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division.

Kevin Sullivan, commissioner of revenue services, said Friday that letters are on the way to taxpayers who may not know about their refunds.

He says the holidays are a good time to find out about forgotten cash.

Sullivan says there are many reasons why taxpayers may forget to cash refund checks or use refund balances on debit cards. “But it’s still their money and we want them to have it,” he said.
