The U.S. government is getting ready to pocket about $950 million dollars in tax refunds. This is from the 2012 year and the deadline to file is April 18th. The feds say about a million Americans have refund checks waiting.

So, how do you do that?

You have to file past due returns on the original tax forms. You can find that on the Turbo Tax website or by contacting the IRS.

The IRS won't accept current year tax forms for your 20-12 return.

Don't miss out.
