The Internal Revenue Service is looking for nearly 3,600 Illinoisans _ but not for the reasons they probably think.

The IRS owes them money.

Sue Hales, a spokeswoman for the IRS in Illinois, says the postal service has returned almost 3,600 tax refund checks to the agency as undeliverable. Those returned checks total more than $3.6 million.

Hales says the IRS can reissue the checks to taxpayers who provide updated addresses, or they can have the money directly deposited into their bank accounts.
