Is there a statute of limitations on an IRS debt?
The IRS has three years from when a particular tax return was due, or when it was actually filed (whichever is later) to assess taxes based on that return. In some situations, this limitation is extended to six years (specifically, there is a substantial omission of gross income—of more than 25 percent—on the return).Once the IRS has formally assessed taxes against a taxpayer based on a return, it has ten years to collect the amount due. If the IRS, prior to the expiration of that ten year period, files suit in court against the taxpayer to collect the debt and wins a judgment in that suit, it gets a new ten years to enforce that judgment, so the IRS can (and generally will) stretch the collection process out another ten years by filing suit, if it thinks there’s still blood to be squeezed from that particular stone.There is no statute of limitations whatsoever if you did not file a return, or if your return is false or fraudulent. The IRS may pursue collections against a taxpayer who does not file or whose return is false or fraudulent without any limitation.
Does the IRS statute of limitations refund rule have a time limit on non-existing income?
There are three possibilities.1) It did make money but didn't pay out and eventually went belly up. This is the most likely possibility. In this scenario, you lost money on an investment. You have a capital loss which is reported. Any loss not used in the current year carries forward into perpetuity until it is used up. It's a good idea to finally sell that thing worth a ton of money (a fine painting in the attic? your collection of Star Wars memorobilia?) this year so that you can offset the gain with the loss.2) It said it made money but it lied and didn't make any at all. It lied on it's tax returns and told the IRS that you did. This is a less likely scenario. In this one, you do the same thing as recommended at (1) above if you are risk averse. If you enjoy taking risks, you can amend the past three years to reclaim the refunds. The problem with this method is the IRS will reject your initial attempts and you will need one heck of a sturdy tax accountant to fight it. I'd use an EA or CPA with at least ten years experience specifically in fighting the IRS in audit battles. In addition, you get a capital loss this year which will again carry onwards until used up.3) It never told the IRS it made money. It just told you. This is the least likely scenario. In this scenario, the IRS will agree with your amended returns. Amend three years and take a capital loss going forward. Use a good accountant who is experienced in amended returns. I recommend an EA or CPA with at least three years experience.

How long do you typically have before a statute of limitations runs out?
That question is too broad to give a useful answer. You need to narrow the scope to what, specifically, you want to know if there is a statute of limitation. A statute of limitations is a period of time after the occurrence of an event that a legal process can be initiated. Once that time period expires, then no legal process can be initiated to resolve the issue.In the U.S., most court cases, civil and criminal, are going to arise under state law. Each state will have its own statute of limitations for various things. The SOL’s in the civil arena tend to be more uniform. For any civil claim (e.g. collection of debt, personal injury, breach of contract, etc.) the SOL’s range usually from 1–6 years, with the most common time frame being 2–4 years. In the civil arena, the SOL’s tend to be relatively short.In the criminal world, you get much longer SOL’s and for some crimes, there is no SOL (e.g. murder).You will need to review your state’s statute of limitations laws to determine which applies to your specific situation.
Is there a specific date attached when a statute of limitations runs out on a crime, or is it a general month that it runs out? And how does someone know if the statute of limitations has run out?
The statute of limitations "usually" begins on the day that there is evidence to support that a crime has been committed, and the victim is aware, or reasonably should be aware, that the crime was committed against them.For example a person who lives alone goes to the hospital for several months.The day after the person is taken away in the ambulance, someone breaks into his home.Since the person was living alone, no one actually knows of or reports the break-in, but as soon as the person is released from the hospital and returns home he reports the break-in.Detective work demonstrates that the break-in actually occurred on July 15, but wasn't discovered until November 28.The statute of limitations begins on November 28, because that is the day when it was first discovered by the victim that a crime had been committed.That time may be tolled, (not counted) under certain conditions, which are usually specified either within the statute that makes the act a crime, or is defined by a higher court in one of it's written decisions.In the above example, the time from July 15 until November 28 was tolled.Since a statute of limitations is generally defined in years, if the statute of limitations for a break-in was ten years, then the statute of limitations in the above (HYPOTETICAL) example would run on November 28, ten years after (the discovery) of the break-in.However, murder and many other major felonies "NO LONGER HAVE A STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS."
What is the statute of limitations for the IRS collecting an old debt?
In IRS speak the statute of limitations is called the collection statute expiration date, or CSED. The CSED for income tax is 10 years from when the tax is assessed. A tax is assessed when the tax payer files the tax return or when the IRS does so on the tax payer's behalf.
