Changed on Sunday to PATH AMOUNT GONE NO BARS and worse
Is it’s still on the path exactly the same since QUESTION *******
Is TODAY the update day where returns and return dates can be issued tomorrow??????????
Congress passed a law last year that requires the IRS to HOLD all tax refunds that include the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) until February 15, 2019, regardless of how early the tax return was filed. So, if you file on the first day, you might still be waiting until February 15 for your refund.
The IRS released a note last year that people held up by this delay shouldn't expect their refunds until the week of February 25, assuming there are no other problems with the tax returns. You can read this press release here.
The goal of this is to cut down on fraud and give the IRS time to ensure no duplicate returns are filed. The trouble is, the IRS will hold your entire tax refund, not just the EITC or ACTC part.
Hope this is true.
No change other than sometimes the refund amount is shown and sometimes it isn't.
Oddly though since it changed to the PATH message yesterday they've only let me check with my credentials once a day. I check when I first wake up and if I try to check again after that it tells me I've exhausted my allowed times of checking. Doesn't do that with my wife's credentials though.
