Remind your elderly neighbors to collect their tax rebates! The number one zip code in DC for unclaimed payments is 20011 – Petworth, with almost 1500 total possible outstanding payment opportunities. The total amount unclaimed for this zip is $437,700.

From a reader:

“Remember those tax rebate checks we all were entitled to get earlier this year? A national non-profit organization (Center on Budget and Policy Priorities) has issued a report listing the number of unclaimed economic stimulus checks by State (and DC) and zip code. Out of curiousity, I looked it up. Interestingly, the number one zip code in DC for unclaimed payments is 20011 – Petworth, with almost 1500 total possible outstanding payment opportunities.. The total amount unclaimed for this zip is $437,700. The link for this is: http://www.cbpp.org/states/7-28-08stim-fact-dc.pdf

Many of those thought not to have filed are seniors, the disabled and disabled veterans. The deadline to claim the money is October 15, and the IRS commissioner is calling on folks to inquire with friends, family and neighbors to ensure that they have filed for the money they are entitled to. So, perhaps in the vein of today’s “looking out for your neighbor/fellow citizen” post, maybe you can urge readers to check with their neighbors, particularly the elderly, and make sure they have applied for this.”
