Attention James Gilmore of Tacoma, Kelly Heine of Lakewood, Jason Huery of Gig Harbor, Neil Lapham of Puyallup, Steven Lyons of Bonney Lake, Jimmy Overly of Roy, John Russom of University Place, Gregory Fields of Ashford and around 5,594 more of you.

The Internal Revenue has some checks – with your name written thereupon – just waiting.

In Washington, some 6,000 taxpayers have not received their stimulus checks, or, in some cases, refund checks, because the postal service returned them due to address errors.

The checks in Washington total $6.2 million. The stimulus checks average $581, and the refund checks come in at $937.

If you’d like to see if your name appears on the list, we’ve added it to our database. Click here.

If you’d like your money, or more information, contact the IRS at or call 800-829-1954.
