Taxpayers across the mid-Atlantic region are receiving mysterious refund checks from the Internal Revenue Service--many for amounts not even close to what they were supposed to get, according to a published report. “Some of these cases are ridiculous,” James Forquer, a Lanham, Md., accountant, said in a story in the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I have one client who was owed $865 from the IRS. Instead, he received seven checks totaling $612. None of them were remotely related to the amount he is owed,” Forquer said.
