That's because there's a 3 year statute of limitations on issuing tax refund check. This three-year period is measured from the date you filed your original tax return. If you filed your return before Apr 15th, the 3 year period begins from Apr 15th; if you are beyond the 3 year period, you can only receive refund for overpaid taxes that were actually paid during the previous2 years.
