  1. My husband sent our Federal Income Forms with a check certified on April 8, 2019 and it was delivered at on April 11, 2019. We still have received the signed and our check has not be processed through our bank. We’re getting a little concerned because the check was a large amount and don’t want to be lost. Could you help us out?

  2. I sent a check for $1400 to the IRS office in San Francisco CA for extra tax payment on December 3 and the check has never been cashed. I do not know if it has been received or may have been lost. Is there some way for me to find out?

  3. I am a Canadian worked in San Francisco (for the first time in USA) for 4 months (123 days) and earned $23,000. My employer deducted State tax as well as Federal tax.

    I want to know how to go about to apply for the refund of Federal as well as State tax paid.
