More Than 100,000 Alabamians Missing $33 Million
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The federal government is having a hard time giving away $33 million in Alabama.

The Internal Revenue Service says more than 104,000 Alabamians are due federal economic stimulus checks, but they haven't filed the federal tax returns necessary to get the checks. Those checks would total more than $33 million.

The IRS says Alabama ranks 17th among the states in the number of people who haven't taken the steps necessary to get their checks. They are mostly senior citizens and disabled veterans who didn't file a tax return for 2007.

Gov. Bob Riley says the IRS and other organizations are offering free help in preparing tax returns. People can call 211 for directions on how to get help.
