I strongly urge you to eschew the "try it and see what happens" approach.

Well put, and understood.

For reference, here is IRC TITLE 26, Subtitle F, CHAPTER 66, Subchapter B, Sec. 6511 describing the period of limitation on filing a claim:

The only way I see that the three year filing deadline (the period of limitation) can be extended is if the taxpayer fails to file due to a disability. See Sec 6511(h).

Bill
that's enough IRC digging for today.
