Hello, I never received refund money from 2012 for deceased parent. What can I do now? I mailed in 1310 form years ago.

Generally, tax refunds for tax years 2012 and earlier can no longer be reissued, as the statute of limitations has expired. But I will provide the information below for who you can contact to check further into it if you'd like. 

1. If you did not get your state refundyou need to contact your state’s tax office or Department of Revenue. Go here to find the contact information for your state https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1901670

2. If you did not get your federal refund, you will need to call the IRS tax refund hotline at 800-829-4477, Monday - Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Or, call the 24-hour ­assistance number at 800-829-1040 and ­request assistance from the taxpayer advocate. 

They will be able to tell you why you never received it. Also, there are some common reasons listed here below.

Or you can contact your local IRS office.  See this IRS website for local IRS offices - http://www.irs.gov/uac/Contact-Your-Local-IRS-Office-1

Another option would be to contact a Taxpayer Advocate in your area.  You can go to this IRS website for Taxpayer Advocate in your area and a toll free number - http://www.irs.gov/Advocate/Local-Taxpayer-Advocate

NOTE: If you never get a refund, it may have been intercepted to pay any of the following:

  • state or federal taxes you owe
  • a defaulted student, SBA, or other federal government loan
  • delinquent child support
  • a public benefit overpayment (such as HUD, VA, or Social Security).

In these ­situations, you are supposed to be notified in writing from the IRS.
