UNDATED -- Just over 4,700 taxpayers in Oklahoma are probably still waiting on either a tax stimulus check or a refund check from the IRS.

David Stell with the IRS office in Oklahoma says the average undelivered stimulus check is $579 and the average undelivered refund check is $787.

Combined, $2,976,714 is listed as "undelivered" in Oklahoma.

There is only one county in Oklahoma with no undelivered refund or stimulus check and that is Cotton County.

"People in 76 of Oklahoma's 77 counties are due a check. For these more than 4,700 Oklahomans, quickly notifying the IRS of a current address could result in extra cash in time for the holidays," said IRS spokesman David Stell.

Please note that people who wish to receive their undelivered stimulus payment must notify the IRS of their new address no later than November 30, 2008.

This is because the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 gives the Treasury Department a deadline. The Act prohibits any stimulus payment from being issued after December 31, 2008.
