Just a slight clarification.   The IRS does NOT make the rules.  It is called the PATH ACT, because it was an act of Congress, (a law) that made the "rule which is a law.   The IRS only applies and enforces the law that Congress passed.

 

The reason for the delay is to allow time for the IRS to receive W-2's and other forms to verify income before blindly paying claimed refunds that are based on that income in order to prevent tax fraud by claiming refunds that are based on income that does not exist.   Claiming fake income to get EIC/ACTC credits was a high runner tax fraud prior to the PATH ACT.

Some early filers were accepted into the early test batch. The IRS doesn't start accepting returns until the 27th!

@Bosrox81  I think you may mean CTC. No one with ACTC and/or EITC will see any updates until Feb. 15th or after. CTC is not included in Path.
