Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name Eva and I will be happy to help you.
2011 - 2013 closed years, which means the IRS will not accept any claims for a refund any more for these years and and it may or may not accept amended return. You can still change 2014 through 2016 and file a joint return.
Well, that's the problem. Because he filed his returns on time, his statute of limitation had expired while yours have not started yet. The IRS will most likely not accept his amended returns if that would mean no taxes for you. It will be up to the IRS reviewer's discretion to accept it or not. You can try but if the IRS already discovered that you did not file, the answer will most likely be no.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
