I have a client that received a notice of deficiency for her 2004 taxes - that were done by a friend and that she can't find a copy of. As a result, her 2005 refund (that I did) is being held up. I finally got her to bring in the letters she has from the IRS. They were asking for documentation about her son and nephew that she had claimed for 2004, and because she didn't send it, they disallowed the exemptions, head of household and EIC. She is now saying that she can't get the documentation for the nephew, since he has gone back to wherever.

The IRS letter gives her a 90 day window to respond which closed before she came in to our office this year. At this point, is there anything that we can do? Would it be possible to file an amended return claiming the son but not the nephew? I'm not sure the best way to approach this.
