Azimi said the FTB has received 87 returned refunds from Mountain View — all of which add up to $38,641. Her organization counts 1,681 returned refunds throughout Santa Clara County — a total of $590,807.
The IRS does not have such a precise breakdown of returned tax refunds, according to a spokesman from that organization.
Both the IRS and the FTB want taxpayers to be able to claim their full refund, the spokespersons said, and each suggested that taxpayers who believe they didn't get their refunds to call or visit websites for the IRS or FTB.
The IRS has a page on its website called "Where's My Refund," which can be found at www.irs.gov/refunds; a telephone service version of "Where's My Refund" can be accessed toll free at 800-829-1954.
The state FTB has a similar website for people to check the status of a refund. That site can be accessed at www.ftb.ca.gov/online/refund. Taxpayers can also call the following toll-free number: 1-800-852-5711.
