SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- About 99,000 Americans could get a windfall just in time for the holidays.
The Internal Revenue Service is trying to give $153 million back to 99,123 Americans. The IRS can't find these taxpayers mostly because the mailing addresses were wrong on their tax returns.
The refunds they have coming average out to $1,547 per person and about 2,100 of them live in the Bay Area. .
