Over $11.6M in unclaimed refunds remain at DOA

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - It was back in April when the Department of Administration initiated the mass distribution of unclaimed tax refunds, some of which have been sitting at DOA since 2009.

And according to DOA deputy director Tony Blaz, over 1,400 checks have been claimed totaling $1.4 million that were re-issued between April and August.

It was back in May when DOA director Benita Manglona told KUAM that following the mass distribution of checks, only $1 million out of $19 million had been processed or picked up by taxpayers. Blaz however says that $19 million figure took into account refunds that were not claimed prior to the mass distribution. In April that number instead was reduced to $13 million, meaning about $11.6 million remains to be claimed as of this week.

Just like in April, the process remains the same on inquiring and picking up unclaimed tax refunds. A valid id is required and for those dating back more than a year would need to set up an appointment. Call 477-1007 or email at unclaimed.checks@doa.guam.gov for more info.
