The Internal Revenue Service is urging taxpayers to make sure they are filing for the one-time telephone excise tax refund.
More than 10-million early filers nationwide have not taken advantage of the refund.
In Alabama more than 136,000 people did not request it.
In the first release of this year’s weekly filing season statistics, about 30-percent of all taxpayers did not request it or are filing incorrectly.
To make the refund easier to figure, the government established a standard refund amount, based on personal exemptions, ranging from 30 to 60 dollars.
