This answer was rated:

what statement or procedure was required when you filled your taxt return in 1987 under IRC section 469 to group your properties to meet this election in 1987?

Megan C :

Thank you for your question, and thanks for using JustAnswer.com.

Megan C :

Back in 1987, you would have to file a statement along with your tax return that indicated that you wished to treat activities as one for purposes of 469(c)(7)(a).

Megan C :

This had to be filed along with your original return, it could not be an attachment to an amended return. That didn't become practice until Rev Proc 2011-34. Until that was established, the only way to find relief from the failure to file the election would be to seek a private letter ruling from the IRS

Customer:

I did that but I have not found my tax returns prior to 1990 and the auditor whats that return which I am still looking for. I wanted to make sure what was required if anything to see if I had to continue looking for the older tax return. I have all of them back to 1990 & I group them every year forward which I felt was more than enough proof.

Megan C :

Yes, I understand. But, you will need proof in the form of that tax return - which, it's been nearly 30 years so it's understandable that you are having difficulty locating it, and the IRS only keeps the past 6 years on file to receive copies

Megan C :

I'm truly sorry if this is inconvenient
