EITC Client Flyer – Important Announcement: Refund Delay Notice
Important Announcement for Taxpayers who file for the Earned Income Credit
“The IRS reminds taxpayers that a new law requires the IRS to hold refunds claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) until Feb. 15. In addition, the IRS wants taxpayers to be aware it will take several days for these refunds to be released and processed through financial institutions. Factoring in weekends and the President’s Day holiday, the IRS cautions that many affected taxpayers may not have actual access to their refunds until the week of Feb. 27.”
This means that wherever you have your tax return prepared, either with Community Teamwork or a private preparer, the same federal rule applies. The IRS will hold all EITC refunds until Feb. 15th no matter where they originated from.
