to assist you. My name is ***** ***** my goal is to help make your life, a little... less taxing.
I am assuming that you mean a refund from 2005. Unfortunately there is only a 3 year statute of limitations
for collecting refunds from the IRS
. SEE BELOW:
Claim for credit
or refund of an overpayment of any tax imposed by this title in respect of which tax the taxpayer is required to file a return shall be filed by the taxpayer within 3 years from the time the return was filed or 2 years from the time the tax was paid, whichever of such periods expires the later, or if no return was filed by the taxpayer, within 2 years from the time the tax was paid. Claim for credit or refund of an overpayment of any tax imposed by this title which is required to be paid by means of a stamp shall be filed by the taxpayer within 3 years from the time the tax was paid.
(4 years) unless an exception is met:
General SOL rule
In general, a taxpayer can file a claim for refund the later of:
Four years after the original return due date
Four years after the date of a timely filed return.
One year from the date of overpayment.
The following SOLs are common exceptions to the general SOL rule:Federal
