Like most taxpayers, you may be rushing to claim your prior year refunds. If you remember that you have a 2016 refund waiting for you, you’re not too late.
Read below to find out if you can still claim your refund.
Can I still claim my refund?
Luckily, because of the IRS Statute of Limitations for prior year refunds. You have three years from the original tax deadline of your return to claim your refund. Otherwise, your refund expires and goes straight to the IRS. That being said, the original tax deadline for 2016 taxes was April 18, 2017, due to April 15th falling on the weekend and Emancipation Day right after.
