Under pressure from Congress, the  IRS now says it will notify people when their refunds are withheld due to fraud suspicion. In 2005, the IRS froze  more than 120,000 refunds that were identified as likely to  be fraudulent. Over the past five years, more than 1.6 million  such refunds were withheld without taxpayers being  notified. Some refunds were eventually released, but others  were delayed for months or still remain frozen.
