IRS Refund Statute Expiration Date and Penalty Abatement


 IRS Refund Statute Expiration Date and Penalty Relief

Did you know that the IRS has something called the Refund Statute Expiration Date (RSED)? 

The IRS is prohibited from issuing a refund of abated penalties and interest on a full paid account if the RSED has passed.

The Internal Revenue Manual section states:

a claim for credit or refund must be filed within 3 years from the time the return was filed or 2 years from the time the tax was paid, whichever is later.
