Actually...I found out the hard way that when you sign your taxes...if you read the teeny tiny print...you are also signing in agreement that you've read everything and agree that it's correct. Once you sign it--they are no longer liable...One year an accountant *forgot* to add in one dexh's incomes (he was self employed so there were always 15 or more 1099's...) and we ended up owing taxes a few months later when the IRS caught that we had forgotten to enter income....

I hope you get everything worked out...banks and the IRS can be a pain in the backside...
