Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Please don't shoot the messenger here, ...
IRS has a statute of limitations on refunds that looks back three years
That may, however, be only for AMENDED returns ... let me check the regs for you...
just a sec
Yes, there's a three year deadline for getting a refund...This doesn't mean however, you still shouldn't file...It's a great way to ensure you won't get a penalty for filing late (because late filing penalties - just like the late payment penalty - is based on taxes owed)
If this HAS helped, I would appreciate a feedback rating of 3 (OK) or better … That's the only way they will pay us here.
HOWEVER, if you need more on this, PLEASE COME BACK here, so you won't be charged for another question.
