While I managed to get my 2000 Roth funded just prior to the closing bell, as unbelievable as it may sound, I did not quite manage to get my 1998 return in by midnight.

Does this mean I have definitely forfeited my refund from 1998? Is it possible that the Seattle earthquake would also provide two extra weeks for the 3 year statute, or is that just plain crazy to ask?

Thanks,

If you promise not to use the full amount of time, I'll tell you that you have until 4/15/2002 to file for a 1998 refund.

That is an easy promise to make Phil, I have the return completed and ready to mail, not to mention the fact that I'm pretty stoked to have a refund from what previously appeared to be a tax liability. Please tell, I can't wait to know your secret :)

Thanks,

kaliban,

Note that when you said you hadn't gotten your "1998 return" ready by April 15 this year, Phil is assuming (quite reasonably) that you really do mean your 1998 Form 1040, which was due to be submitted by 4/15/1999, not -- something else (such as your 1997 Form 1040, which was due 4/15/1998). I wasn't sure which you meant.

You are correct Phooley, I am referring to my 1998 1040 and schedule C, which I had been unable to complete on time because someone had over reported about $10,000 of income on a 1099 and I did not know how to handle that at the time.

Oh, I think I just got it. I misread PMarti's first message. So, do I understand this correctly? For tax year 1998, your 1040 is due on April 15 1999, but the statute doesn't run out on a refund until April 15, 2002? Great! Thanks a million
