You owe past-due taxes and the IRS used either part, or all, of your tax refund to pay the debt.
You received a CP49 notice because the IRS used some, or all, of your tax refund to pay the existing tax debt.
As always, carefully read the notice, which will outline how the IRS used your refund.
However, if you disagree with the IRS assessment, contact the IRS by the phone number or mailing address in this notice.
The only deadline for the CP60 notice is normal statute of limitations to receive a refund, three years beyond the due date of the tax return or two years past the date the return was filed and the taxes paid, whichever is later. The deadline is based on the tax year of the refund.
