Sorry you find yourself in this predicament. I sure hope your former pro has errors and omissions insurance.
There is a lesser-known extension
of that general rule for the statute on amendment, it is the later of three years from when the return was due or two years from then the tax, interest
and penalties are paid. I don't know if this helps you, but if there were balances due that took a while, you might open more years.
What's worse is those losses, if they included depreciation
, have to be counted when you sell the property
(the rule is claimed or claimable depreciation - just a FYI).
Please advise if this helps, or if I can assist further. Thanks from Just Answer/PDtax.
If you are close on a statute but can't file in time, a protective amendment (enough to keep the statute open) or an agreement with you and IRS
can extend an open statute.
