HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — More than 25,000 business and individual taxpayers have until March 1st to claim a more than $6.5 million in tax refunds.

Letters are on their way to Connecticut taxpayers who forgot to claim their refunds.

If the refunds go unclaimed, the money will go to the state. “With the holidays and start of a new year, it’s a great time to let taxpayers know there’s a little extra cash they forgot about,” said Commissioner of Revenue Services Kevin B. Sullivan. “There are many reasons why taxpayers may forget to cash past refund checks or use refund balances paid by debit card. But it’s still their money and we want them to have it.
