Fred I suggest you file an extension for your personal return while you look for a new CPA to get your returns done for 2013. You can get Form 4868 on the IRS website at www.irs.gov.
So then you would have to pay tax on the difference.
If you haven't filed in 5 years I suggest you gather your documents and find a local CPA to help you get caught up. If you're due a refund you will only get it for the past 3 years, anything prior you will have lost :-(
