@drewmc887 no one ever seems to read that right. PATH ACT says no EIC or ACTC UNTIL AT LEAST THE 15th, but per the usual "it takes time" not to expect the return until end of February.
I can tell you last year with the ACTC I received my tax return ON THE 15th. But that doesn't mean I necessarily will this year, or you will. Also I paid my fees upfront, I didn't choose to have them taken out of my return which as I understand it can cause a slight delay while it routes through everywhere.
