Claim of Right
A taxpayer may be able to deduct or, in some cases, claim a credit for amounts the taxpayer is required to repay that the taxpayer included in income in a prior year or years under a claim of right. The term "claim of right" means that, based on the available facts, the taxpayer had an unrestricted right to the income.
