A lil' something extra in your tax refund

Don't forget to claim the telephone tax refund when filing federal tax returns this year.

The IRS says more than a third of those filing early have missed the one-time refund of at least $30.

The government stopped collecting the long-distance excise tax in August, and has authorized a refund of taxes collected on bills from March 2003 to July of last year.

Those who claim a standard refund, which requires no documentation, will receive between $30 and $60.

Those who choose to make claims on the actual amount they paid need to have documents in case the IRS asks questions, but the documents do not have to be sent with the return.
