Start your engines! The last day to claim your 2012 tax refund is April 18th, 2016.
Many of us recognize April 18th as the deadline to file our 2015 tax returns. Did you know that it is also the last day to file a 2012 tax return and claim a tax refund?
The IRS has a three-year statute of limitations for taxpayers to collect their refund money. Once those three years are up, all unclaimed refunds land themselves amongst others within the IRS walls of tax years past.
Sorry for the dramatization but it’s true. Why give up your refund to the IRS when you can file your 2012 tax return today and get your hard-earned money back?
File your 2012 tax return in a few simple steps.
You only have until mid-April to claim your 2012 tax refund. If you start today, you could have that refund in your hand by the end of the month. It’s easy! Here’s how:
- Create an account on PriorTax. Select 2012 as your tax year, create a username and unique password.
- Enter your tax information. Once you have your 2012 tax documents handy, we’ll ask all the questions.
- Submit your 2012 account. The PriorTax team will review your information and make a pdf version available for you to download.
- Print, sign and mail your 2012 tax return. Since you cannot e-file a prior year tax return, you’ll need to mail your return to the IRS.
