Here's one for the books....(mine anyway):It became apparent last year (1998) that my 1994 Federal return was...ummm.... not 100% accurate. I found this out after the IRS sent me a "bill" for something in the nieghborhod of $31,000.Once the nitro took affect, I called my accountant and he "re"did my return (I did the original back in '95). According to his calculations, and based upon the information from my return (the original), he determined (and I immediately agreed) that the IRS actually owed ME $850.Shortly after submitting this "corrected" return, I was advised by the IRS that because there was a more than 3 year "gap" (1995 - 1998), they were not recognizing the amount due as it was past the three (3) year statute of limitations.....Is anyone else as surprised to hear this as I was? Aside from contacting my Congressman, any thoughts as to other avenues that might be available to me?What troubles me most is the IRS is the partt that RAISED the issue to begin with... MORE than 3 years late(r).I'm interested in hearing another perspective.....Thanks
