Villa Rica, GA asked in Tax Law for Georgia

Q: I have all my documentation from Express Mail that it was postmarked on 10/15/2018. I’m getting the run around.

Advocate, IRS nor Appeals will help me. My return was accepted. They keep telling me it was beyond 3 years and it wasn’t. I have my transcript where they accepted my extension.

A: Without a full transcript review, it’s hard to say. The last attorney mentioned three years plus extensions. Try referencing the Internal Revenue Manual (IRM) section that mentions 3 yrs plus extension for SOL for refunds. The IRS agents should follow their own guidelines. This might help point the IRS agent in the right direction. You can find this online. Good luck with your refund request.
