Is the refund hold also for the Child tax credit

Is the refund hold also for the Child tax credit

Just EIC and the additional child tax credit, which are available to lower income taxpayers.

This is ridiculous!  The lower income people are the people who need it the most!  So, because there's a bunch of scumbags that have defrauded the government by using the EIC, we all have to suffer?  I'm so sick of this BS!

Well, over the past few years, the IRS has taken the position that it is better to pay money to people in need and pay billions more to crooks, than to take the time to verify people's tax returns.  Congress disagreed, and in 2015 Congress passed, and Pres. Obama signed, the PATH act, which extended or made permanent many deductions and credits, but also included the provision that the IRS must do more to prevent fraudulent EIC returns.

So will they start processing them on the 15th or start releasing them that day?

I agree it's not fair for this to be just lower tax filers and not for every one that's wrong in so many ways!!!

That's why I was saying what's for one should have been for all. They should have gone about this a different way by making the taxpayers verify information that only they would know, even if it was a series of questions. There is only so much a crook can get away with so they should have had a way for everyone to verify important information that the crook could never guess. If they had made a way to do that instead, many people would have had their income tax money by now and there would have never been a wait.
