Because they released the refund and they didn't continue to send you letters requesting information, there is not reason to expect a reduction of your refund for the current year.  

As a precaution, you might contact the IRS to see if they show any open requests for the information.  You have time right now to supply anything necessary if applicable.  Use the number on the letter or use the information here.

They only sent me one letter and i have not heard from them since after i recieved my taxes. So there may be a possibility they will with held my taxes this year even if i dont claim the same individual but because of last years?

There doesn't appear to be a reason for them to withhold it since they stopped pursuing the information.

Yes, i did not send any forms in that they have requested. But theu released my refund. I cannot say the same for anyone else because i know someone now who had reciebed tje same letter and theyve waited and did not revieve their refund and had to send in their forms.
