Hawaii checks sent back to IRS as returned mail

Hundreds of checks issued by the Inland Revenue Service (IRS) as refunds for Hawaiian residents have been sent back to the organization as returned mail.

Around 700 checks were issued with the wrong address data and so the United States Postal Service had to send them back, reports the Honolulu Advertiser.

The checks total over $680,000 and people who think they may have been affected can check the IRS website and update their address data if they need to, whereupon the organization will re-send them.

Residents also have the option of using the website to monitor the status of their refund using the Where's My Refund tool.

In other news, many residents of Vancouver in Washington state are campaigning to have the name of the town changed to Fort Vancouver in a bid to distinguish it from Vancouver in British Columbia, reports the Vancouver Columbian.

The Portland post office has confirmed a name change would not affect mail deliveries, but the town's mayor, Royce Pollard, is among those who oppose the idea.
