So definitely the statutes of limitations are not expired? So the statutes are extended 3 yrs from when the IRS responded not from the original return date of 2008??
The statute of limitations has to do with how long you have to request a refund. In your case, you just want to amend a tax return to reduce the amount of tax owed and you can do that as far back as you'd like to. It will be submitted for "reconsideration" and if accepted, will be entered just like any other return. If done properly, this could substantially reduce your 2008 tax liability.
THANK YOU! Will look at my tax returns next couple of days. May have a couple more..try to make it quick...questions. Can't tell you how much this is appreciated...beyond words.
