What are they talking bout tax topic 151?

Tax Topic 151 means your return is under review. There are numerous reasons the IRS may review your return including but not limited to tax credit claims such as Earned Income Credit or the Education Credits. Your best bet is to wait until you receive a letter from the IRS, which can take up to or more than 4 weeks for you to receive it.  The IRS letter will give you specific instructions on what additional information they may need from you in order to finish processing your return.
