 – January 10, 2011 /Press Release/  –– 

(New York, NY — January 10, 2010) Mount Sinai filed the medical resident FICA (Social Security and Medicare) refund claim for the period 1995 through March 31, 2005 with the IRS on December 17, 2010. Although the IRS has not provided a specific timeframe for its review, we estimate that it will take 6 to 18 months for the IRS to process these claims and issue refunds plus statutory interest. If you timely filed your consent form, we will contact you once Mount Sinai receives funds applicable to your refund claim.
