Your refund for a particular tax year is being held. You did not file a tax return for a prior year, and the IRS thinks you will owe taxes for that year.
If you miss the deadline: The IRS may figure your tax for you for the unfiled year. Penalties and interest will apply. Your refund will be held and may be applied to any balance resulting from the unfiled year.
The IRS uses Notice CP88 to inform you they are holding your tax refund until you file. This is essentially the same Notice as the CP63. The IRS believes you owe taxes or they would not have sent Notice CP88.

Confusion over Notice CP88
A lot of times, people believe that they did file but the IRS says otherwise. If you have the certified mailing receipt showing the IRS stamp then you can argue about the filing date and there is a procedure for doing that. But, absent the mailing receipt, it is usually better to just re-file than argue. It isn't going to make a lot of difference in the final outcome & they must be filed anyway. However, since you are filing an original return you are allowed to go through your records and find more deductions before filing!
