Hello Gabrielle,

The DC code section which deals with the statute of limitations on filing for a refund is section 47-4304.

Here is what that section states regarding the suspension of the statute of limitations:

(d)(1) In the case of an individual, the running of the period of limitation specified in subsection (a) of this section shall be suspended during any period that the individual is financially disabled.

(2) For purposes of paragraph (1) of this subsection, an individual is "financially disabled" if the individual's ability to receive and evaluate information effectively or to communicate decisions is impaired to such an extent that he or she lacks the capacity to manage some or all of his or her financial resources. An individual shall not be treated as financially disabled during any period that the individual's spouse, domestic partner, or another person may act on behalf of the individual in financial matters.

Here is a link to that code section for your reference.
