Hello. Thank you for choosing this Q&A service for assistance. My name is Angela. I will be assisting you.

In brief, the answer is no. Unfortunately the time period for claiming losses has long since expired. SEE BELOW:

-------------------------------

Casualty losses are generally deductible in the year the casualty occurred. For theft losses, the year the theft is discovered within a certain number of years. For more detailed information on claiming losses, you can refer to the following webpage:

https://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc500/tc515

If the information provided clarifies matters for you, I ask that you please take the time to scroll to the top of the page and select 3 or more stars to positively rate my response so that I can receive credit for assisting you. A 5 star rating is greatly appreciated.

IS THERE A FORM TO CLAIM NON FILERS STAUST ON AMERICAN FEDERAUL AND STATE RETURNS (WISCONSIN)
Tax Professional: Tax.appeal.168, Tax Accountant replied 8 months ago

Hello again.

For the IRS, the document is referred to as the IRS Verification of non-filing letter. You can get this letter in two ways, either online or by mail. To get the letter online, go to the following webpage and do the following:

----------------------------------

Link to webpage:

https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

  • Click “Get Transcript ONLINE” (If at any point, you cannot validate your identity – for example, you cannot provide financial verification information or you lack access to a mobile phone – you may use Get Transcript by MAIL, see below)
  • Enter the non filer’s Social Security Number, email address, filing status, account numbers for loan or credit card associated with your name, and mobile phone associated with your name.
  • Click “Continue”
  • Select "Verification of Non-filing Letter " and in the Tax Year field, select "2015".
  • If successfully validated, you will be able to view your IRS Verification of Non-filing Letter

If you do not wish to online system, to get the letter by mail, complete the Form 4506-T and do the following:

Link to Form 4506-T:

https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506t.pdf

----------------------------------

  • Complete lines 1 – 4, following the instructions on page 2 of the form.
  • Line 3: enter the non filer's street address and zip or postal code. Use the address currently on file with the IRS. (Problems entering your street address?)
  • Line 5 provides non filers with the option to have their IRS Verification of Non-filing Letter mailed directly to a third party by the IRS. Do not have your IRS Verification of Non-filing Letter sent directly to Marquette.
  • Line 6: Enter tax form number 1040.
  • Line 7: Select the checkbox on the right hand side for Verification of Nonfiling.
  • Line 9: Year or period requested field, enter "12/31/2015".
  • The non filer must sign and date the form and enter their telephone number. Only one signature is required when requesting a joint IRS Verification of Non-filing Letter.
  • Mail or fax the completed IRS Form 4506-T to the address (or FAX number) provided on page 2 of Form 4506-T.
  • If the 4506-T information is successfully validated, tax filers can expect to receive a paper IRS Verification of Non-filing Letter at the address provided on their request within 5 to 10 days.

I will check to see if the state of Wisconsin has such a letter and get back with you shortly.
