Can the state charge you for taxes filled 4 years ago?

The state of Michigan sent me and my wife a letter asking for money for an adjustment they made for our 2015 taxes.

TurboTax does not receive any information from the IRS or your state after your return was filed, so no one at TurboTax knows about a letter you received from the IRS or the state.

AUDIT SUPPORT

 

TurboTax has a special phone number for help with IRS/state tax letters, which will be easier than going through regular Customer Support.   At the page below, click on the blue button that says "Get Help from TurboTax Support".  Then it will ask you what tax year is your letter.  Then it will ask you what the letter concerns. Then it will show you the phone number during posted business hours.

Yes. Taxing authorities can go back 10 years. But if they have reasonable suspicion of fraud, there is no limit on how far back they can go.

Yes, they can.  Michigan has a 4-year statute of limitations on assessing taxes, meaning that they have until sometime in 2020 to do so with respect to a timely filed 2015 Michigan tax return.
