How do you file taxes to the IRS for 2002 and 2003 if you were due refunds both years?
Do you mean you believe you are owed refunds? Or that you failed to file your taxes for the incomes for those two years 2002 and 2003 and you may owe the IRS. Either way you should contact a tax preparer or contact the IRS, they do have help lines: Such as 1-800-829-1040 IRS Tax Help Line for Individuals For individual and joint filers who need procedural or tax law information and/ or help to file their 1040-type individual returns (including Schedules C and E); and, general account information for Form 1040 Filers. Automated Self-Service Interactive Applications are also offered on this line. I meant i need to file those two years and am PROBABLY owed a refund. Answer You only have three years to claim a refund from the date the return was due. The latest return you mentioned, 2003, was due on April 15, 2004. That means the three year deadline to claim your refund was April 15, 2007. If you were actually due a refund, you've missed your opportunity to claim it. With that said, I've added a link below for IRS forms from previous years.

No, you already paid tax on the money you used to pay taxes, you just paid too much of it, and therefore it is not taxed again. State tax refunds, when they are used as a …deduction from federal taxable income, gets the opposite result - they are federally taxable.
You need to discuss this with your attorney. Once you receive your tax refund, it's part of your personal assets that could be seized to pay creditors. If you file bankruptc…y before you get your taxes then the government will keep your tax refund and put it towards your debt. The bankruptcy court has 1 year to go back and open your case even after your bankruptcy has been discharged. If you can prove that the money is needed/used for catching up rent or other nessacery bills they will not take it.
Contact your local property tax department and request a copy of the form that you will need to use to file for the property tax refund or you could try and see if this could …be done online at the local property tax online website.
The IRS does offer a free taz refund calculator. If you vist their website, you should be able to quickly find what you are looking for without a problems!

That depends. If you didn't overpay your taxes through withholding or other means, you won't get a refund. If you were not required to file a tax return in 2007 and are du…e a refund, there is no reason you shouldn't get it. If you had income in 2007 that the IRS is aware of (say because it was reported on a W-2 or 1099) and that was sufficient to require the filing of a 2007 return, your refund may be held up until the 2007 issue is resolved. If you meant to ask "Is there still time for me to get a 2007 refund?" the answer is an emphatic yes. All you have to do is fill out your 2007 tax forms and mail them in. It's really that simple. Even if you didn't file a 2007 tax return, you should file a 2008 tax return on time if you are required to file for 2008. A lot of people, for one reason or another, neglect to file a tax return for a year or two. They then become scared and stop filing tax returns for future years. Even if you missed a return in the past, you should file this year's return on time. Each and every year you miss is a separate offense and subject to a whole new set of additional possible penalties. Not filing for 2008 will not help your problems from past years. In fact, it will compound your problems and make them orders of magnitude worse. If you should have filed taxes in 2007 or you were owed a refund from 2007, file your 2007 taxes now. And regardless of what you do about 2007, file your 2008 taxes on time.
Yes, the Department of Human Services can take some or all of your state and federal tax refunds to pay a child support debt.
The IRS only seizes personal tax refunds when there are tax arrearages or court ordered child support arrearages. The IRS does not have the power to withhold personal tax …refunds for creditor judgments. ACTUALLY THE IRS CAN HOLD YOUR REFUND FOR CREDITOR JUGDEMENT DEPENDING ON THE AMOUNT OF THE DEBT AND IF THE CREDITOR CONTACTED THEM THE YEAR BEFORE IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE TYPE OF CREDITOR
January 1st of each year
Yes. Do you think the IRS should just presume that everybody who doesn't file doesn't owe any taxes? 26USC6012 requires anyone having more than a certain amount of income …to file a tax return. 26USC7203 makes willful failure to file a return a crime punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a $25,000 fine. Neither of these laws carry any requirement that you owe money. It is extremely rare, but people have been successfully criminally prosecuted for failure to file even though they might owe no money. See Spies v. United States, 317 U.S. 492, 496 (1943); United States v. Wade, 585 F.2d 573, 574 (5th Cir. 1978). Is the typical guy whose only source of income is a W-2 on which he had way too much tax withheld going to get prosecuted? No. Maybe if he gets arrested for something else like drugs, a tax charge might be piled onto his case. Or if he sends threatening letters to the IRS commissioner, they might take revenge. But not typically. People who have never had any income other than a W-2 forget one fact: The IRS does not know whether you owe any money until you file your taxes. A lot of people have income from other sources that does not get reported on a W-2. They owe income tax on that, too. And the IRS does not know that you have dependents or have deductions or whatever unless you file a tax return. They need that statement, sworn under penalty of perjury, of your income, deductions, exemptions, credits, and so on to properly calculate whether you owe taxes. If you don't send it to them, they will make certain worst-case assumptions about you and could even pursue you for taxes you don't owe. And if you don't file, the statute of limitations never starts running. That mean that the IRS can hound you over whether you owed taxes forever. There are also certain elections that need to be made on or before the filing date. Failure to make these elections in a timely manner means you forfeit the opportunity. For example, you can take a return of your current year IRA contribution or recharacterize a contribution up until October 15 of the next year, but only if you file your return (or an extension) on time, even if you don't owe money. Now many people will point to the fact that the civil penalty (as opposed to the rare criminal penalty) for filing late is based on the amount of money you owe. If you don't owe any money, the penalty is $0. (Note: some states impose penalties that may not be based on the amount you owe.) They then extrapolate that to mean you are not required to file and nothing will happen if you don't. These people do not know the big picture. And I don't know how many times I've seen people say "I always get a refund" but this year they don't. And they don't realize it because they haven't filled out their taxes. Or they make a mistake on their taxes and the IRS catches them. They end up paying thousands of dollars in needless failure to file penalties because they didn't file on time.
An IRS refund can be seized for child support arrearages and/or tax arrearages. And in some cases for repayment of federally funded student loans.
Anyone can file taxes. You can only get a refund if you overpaid taxes during the year or qualify for some refundable tax credit such as the Earned Income Credit or the Addi…tional Child Tax Credit. The most likely reason you might get a refund would be if you had taxes withheld from your unemployment compensation.
Answer Yes. (Although in fairness, it isn't the IRS taking it, it is the IRS can be instructed to give it to the government agency you owe).
It depends on the courts. I had a friend who went through bankruptcy and was owed a refund from the IRS. The trustee for the bankruptcy ordered her to turn over the refu…nd to the courts to be paid out to creditors. So it could happen, but they cannot actually intercept or offset your refund. They will just order you to pay it to the trustee.
The same as you would have filed for 2008 ... you fill out the forms and attach all wage statements for that year and file it with the IRS. Most likely there will be penalties… for not filing this seven years ago ... you may want to handle this through a CPA. You can find the 2002 forms and publications here: http://www.irs.gov/formspubs/article/0,,id=141437,00.html However, the mailing addresses have changed since 2002. Find the new addresses here: http://www.irs.gov/file/index.html
Yes, if you are in the Tax Refund Offset Program through the Financial Management Services. Through this program, your refund or overpayment may also be reduced by FMS and off…set to pay any past-due child support, Federal agency non-tax debts, or state income tax obligations.
If it is in deferred status, they will probably not tax your tax refund. If your student loan is delinquent, then they will be retaining you refund and putting it toward y…our debt.
