The Internal Revenue Service says taxpayers in the Dakotas who did not file a federal return for 2008 might have refunds coming, but the three-year window for them to claim the money is closing.

The IRS estimates that refunds totaling more than $1.9 million might be waiting for about 2,000 North Dakotans. In South Dakota, about 2,300 residents might have about $2.2 million coming.

Nationwide, refunds totaling more than $1 billion might be waiting for 1 million people. The deadline to file a return and claim the money is April 17. Any money that is not claimed goes into the federal treasury.
