    So this year I did not claim any dependents as I allowed the mother of my kids to claim them. I am getting the following message with no bars or refund amount? What does this mean? I did my taxes 2/05/2018.

    According to the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act, the IRS cannot issue refunds before mid-February for tax returns that claim the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit. This applies to the entire refund, even the portion not associated with these credits.

    Check Where’s My Refund in mid- to late February for your personalized refund status. It’s updated once a day and remains the best way to check the status of your refund.

    Please read the following information related to your tax situation:

    Is it because I had a school 1098-T form?
