Check with the IRS to see if you have an unexpected tax refund just in time for Christmas.

The IRS wants to mail some early Christmas presents in the form of tax refund checks. They'd like to re-issue the checks because the first ones didn't make it to local taxpayers the first time around.

The agency says more than $616,000 in refunds were marked "return to sender" because the addresses were incorrect.

In all, 345 District taxpayers are due refund checks that average more than $1,700 each. To find out if you've got an early Christmas present waiting for you from the IRS, check out their 'Where's My Refund' tool.
