Claiming a 2013 tax refund
Yes! You can collect your 2013 tax refund in 2015. The IRS allows up to three years (from the tax return’s deadline date) to get your refund. However, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t file and collect your 2013 refund as soon as possible. Why let the IRS hold onto your hard earned money?
