H1B visa extension is based on Issue or expiry date?


My H1B visa was issued on 12th April 2007 and expired on 30th September 2009.

I came briefly to US (for a month in september 2007) but had to return back since the US financial meltdown had already begun and jobs prospects were very bleak.

Is there a way I can go for H1B visa extension this year?

If extension is possible in my case, wil this year quota, cut off date (march 2014) be applicable for me?

Thanks and regards
