My client's uncle died in 2013; research suggests that 2011-2013 returns were never filed.
Preliminary estimates show that no Federal return would have been due, but a NY (state and city) returns might have been due.
Should I suggest that my client file the returns? Would the returns be processed if filed? Under Federal law, there is generally no statue of limitations on unfiled returns. Same under NY law?
As a separate question, what address to put on the returns. NY will be confused if not in NY, but client lives in FL.
(Client contacted me to file (late) 2013-2017 returns for the estate, which I intend to do.)
