@Jamcbroom45 Staring to become so frustrating because now it seems like if we don’t get it before the next stimulus goes out we are going to wait until they send out all the payments

The IRS says that it will issue 9 out of 10 refunds to taxpayers in less than 21 days.

 

This IRS FAQ states:

 

If you claimed the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC), you can expect to get your refund by the first week of March if:

  • You file your return online,
  • You choose to get your refund by direct deposit, and
  • We found no issues with your return.

Additionally, your financial institution may need time to accept your direct deposit or issue a debit card. Many institutions don’t process payments on weekends or holidays. So, if you file early, be aware of Federal and local holidays that may affect how soon you get your refund.

 

Why We Hold Your Refund

 

By law, we cannot issue your refund before February 15. This includes your entire refund, not just the part that is related to the credit you claimed on your tax return.

 

If you claim the EITC or ACTC, we may need more information from you about your return. If we do, we will send you a letter.
