The period of limitations is the period of time in which you can amend your tax return to claim a credit or refund, or that the IRS can assess additional tax. The information here contains the periods of limitations that apply to income tax returns. Unless otherwise stated, the years refer to the period after the return was filed. Returns filed before the due date are treated as filed on the due date.

A senior tax analyst she spoke with says that “sometimes using an alternative approach can give you tax savings.”
Coombes offers seven situations where giving up a tax perk may save you money. For example, some higher-income parents may be better off not claiming personal exemptions for their college-age student. That’s because the student may be eligible for certain tuition credits. And in some cases, married couples may be better off filing separately. Read the full story here.
The e-mails direct the consumer to a Web link that requests personal and financial information, such as Social Security, bank account or credit card numbers. The practice of tricking victims into revealing private personal and financial information over the Internet is known as “phishing” for information.
