(ABC) As the deadline to file your 2013 tax return approaches, the IRS said on Wednesday that it owes refunds to more than 918,000 taxpayers who did not file a return for 2010. 

The total amount due taxpayers is about $760 million, with the average refund due from over-withholding about $571. 

But the window to claim that refund is closing quickly and that anyone owed a refund must file the 2010 return by April 15 to claim it. After that, it becomes property of the U.S. Treasury.
