The refund was sent to me in June of 2000 so it's definitely less then 2 years right now. However, the letter I received the other day said they will send me a bill in about 8 weeks and if I agree I owe them that amount then to pay it when I receive that bill. So that would bring us to about November 2001, which means they would have about 7 months to come after me even if it was an unassessable erroneous refund. Thanks for the info though ... I will do some research on unassessable vs. assessable and also see what my cpa has to say.As far as the other reply, they just totally screwed up. I did everything correctly, paid about 30k in takes, then 3 or 4 months later they sent me a letter saying I figured blah blah blah incorrectly and am now due a refund. Apparentely they recently realized that THEY are the ones who screwed up, and now want the money back. I've been doing some research on this lately and this may be related to a problem the IRS had regarding 1999 taxes. They said in a bulletin somewhere that they incorrectly calculated many peoples' refunds for this year.Thanks to everyone who has replied so far. It just seems CRAZY to me that I should have to bend over backwards to pay this money back after all this time has elapsed, when they are the ones who caused the problem. We'll see what they say once I talk to them I guess.
