Final regulations: Place for filing refund claims

The Treasury Department and IRS today released for publication in the Federal Register final regulations (T.D. 9727) providing that, unless otherwise directed, the proper place for taxpayers to file a claim for credit or refund is with the service center where the taxpayer currently would be required to file a tax return for the type of tax to which the claims relates (without regard to the place where the tax was paid or was required to be paid).
