Q: I filed 2016 taxes in 2017. Its flagged identity theft. Never received my refund, what are my rights.
I’m trying to get my refund still today. My identity has been confirmed, I get told wait 3 months every three months. They are busy and I get that. I need this money or I will be homeless. What are my rights?
If you are referring to federal taxes, call the taxpayer advocate and see if they can help. Here is a link to look up the closest office to you.
Carli Jo Aelker agrees with this answer
A: To add a little bit to Linda's response - you could even get a little ahead by filling out an IRS Form 911. This is a written request for TPA help. Have that form completed when you call in and they will be able to give you more guidance on if you should mail or fax it in.
