The IRS recently sent the University of Rochester a report on their examination of the medical resident FICA claims. The University of Rochester is currently reviewing the report and has been in touch with the IRS examining agent. We believe additional information will be forthcoming from the IRS in the next 8-12 weeks. Additional time will be needed to reconcile tax and interest amounts for each resident. We will post more information about when funds might be available for distribution as soon as it becomes available.

The University of Rochester has perfected its claim refund with the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS notified us on October 27th that it was beginning the process of reviewing and testing the University of Rochester – Strong Memorial Hospital’s and Highland Hospital’s claims. We don’t know how long the testing process will take, or what other steps the IRS will ask parties to go through to receive their refunds, or how long it will take for any refunds to be paid. You will be notified when we have information about your refund.
