LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Congressman Brad Sherman (D - Sherman Oaks) has uncovered more than 4,000 taxpayers in LA County who are owed checks from the IRS.
The government says they have been unable to find the 4,176 people owed money, but at a press conference Saturday, Sherman said he was able to track down some of the recipients. Combined, the LA County residents are owed $6.7 million.
Sherman is a CPA and tax law specialist.
Sherman is a senior member of the House Financial Services Committee. Prior to heading to Congress, Sherman served as the Chair of the California Board of Equalization, America's second largest tax agency.
Sherman is currently involved in an intense re-election fight with Howard Berman after redistricting combined their two House seats into one.
