More than $13 million worth of tax refunds from 2011 is still waiting to be claimed by Connecticut taxpayers. U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal made the announcement this month, saying most of that money is owed to people who didn’t claim the federal Earned Income Tax Credit, a cash assistance program available to low-income residents. In February, state and local leaders came to Stamford, urging eligible residents to apply for the credit, a benefit the IRS says 1 in 5 qualified Americans don’t file for, leaving millions of dollars on the table. Blumenthal says more than 13,000 residents haven’t filed their 2011 tax returns, according to the IRS. And the three-year grace period for claiming the refunds will soon expire, as the April 15 tax return deadline draws near.
