OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- There is about $14.5 million in unclaimed tax refunds from 2005 due to about 17,000 Oklahomans.

And the deadline to claim the money is April 15.

Internal Revenue Service spokesman David Stell says the money is income taxes withheld from the salaries of Oklahomans during the 2005 tax year.

He says those people have not filed an income tax return and by law the deadline to file is April 15, 2009.

The IRS says nationwide there is about $1.3 billion in unclaimed tax refunds due to more than one million taxpayers.
