The IRS says it has millions of dollars in unclaimed child tax credits and refunds. The IRS says it's holding more than $118,000,000 in tax refunds and advance child credit payments. More than 200,000 taxpayers, including some in the Heartland, didn't get their money all because the IRS had the wrong address and got the checks back.

To find out if you got missed, call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.
