When I sent in my 2014 tax return late last year, I also sent in an amendment to my 2013 tax return due to a Section 1256 contract loss carryback (I had Section 1256 gains in 2013 and losses in 2014). I was due to receive a large refund.
I just received a letter from the IRS saying that they cannot approve the refund because they want several pieces of additional documentation. The letter has no mention of any deadline.
I sent the letter to my CPA, who prepared my 2014 return and the amendment to my 2013 return. But I have no idea when my CPA will be able to gather up all the documentation and send it to me (he has been very slow in the past).
Is there a deadline for when I need to send the documentation to the IRS?
