OR Earned Income Credit whether you have a child or not.

Beginning in 2017, if you claim the EITC or ACTC on your tax return, the IRS must hold your refund until Feb. 15. This new law requires the IRS to hold the entire refund

"Will I get my refund on Feb. 15?

While the IRS will begin to issue EITC/ACTC refunds starting Feb. 15, you should not count on actually seeing your refund until the week of Feb. 27 -- if you chose direct deposit or a debit card and there are no processing issues with your tax return.

My deposit is pending to deposit in my account on the 22nd. WMR still doesnt show approved or a ddd. However, my financial institution shows it pending for Wednesday.
