Get your money back, America!

If you have not filed your 2012 federal income taxes, the government is preparing to pocket your refund.

More than $950 million in tax refunds will disappear after the April 18 deadline.

The feds say about 1 million Americans have refund checks of at least 600 bucks waiting for them.

The IRS reminds taxpayers seeking a 2012 refund that their checks may be held if they have not filed tax returns for 2013 and 2014. In addition, the refund will be applied to any amounts still owed to the IRS, or their state tax agency and may be used to offset unpaid child support or past due federal debts, such as student loans.
