The IRS says it has more than $1 billion in unclaimed tax refunds from 2008.

More than one million people were eligible for refunds, but didn't file.

The IRS estimates that half of the potential 2008 refunds are over $600.

In some cases people had too little income to require filing a tax return, even though they had taxes withheld.

If you think you're one of the, you better hurry.

The deadline to file is April 17.
