You must file your return within three years of the original due date (including any extensions granted) if you want to receive a refund for overpaid taxes.

Does this mean that if an extension was filed for 2007, the date to receive a refund is October of 2011 and not April 2011?


No. Prepaid taxes are considered to have been paid on the original unextended due date, and you must file a claim for refund of them within 3 years of that date.
