Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)

  • hello. I have a question. my son is permanently disabled and will live with my wife and I for the rest of his life. now I know we can claim him as a dependent but can we still get the EITC even when he’s over the age of 18 or 19. is it a lifetime credit since he’s never going to be able to be on his own?

  • Is anybody in this group going through the 45/60 day review????

  • My return was accepted Jan. 26th, and as of today, Feb. 26th I still have the “still processing” message. I haven’t been able to get anyone on the phone. Has anyone in a similar situation had any luck getting anyone on the line and if so, were you able to get any answers? I’m getting super worried.

    • I’m having the exact same problem! I talked to someone today and all he could tell me was A letter was sent out to me on Feb 23rd and my refund is under review it could take up to 60 days! I’m super worried also idk what’s going on!

    • U can get someone on the line by pushing 2132 as u listen to the prompts when it says listen to these 7 prompts don’t push a number just wait it will ask for your social too

    • i called them because my status completely disappeared online and they said the same thing I would receive a letter in the mail and it could take 45 days. I don’t understand why. Its the first time I have used a tax service that I paid for and now this.

    • I called yesterday and they asked me if I received the letter. I said no, and they said it was sent out on feb. 5th, then freaked out and changed a bunch of stuff and I stayed on the phone for a solid 2 – 2 1/2 hours while on the line with them. Then she tells me they are resending it and I should get it in 2 weeks and once I verify my identity…[Read more]

    • They are doing more frequent random identification verification checks. It is for your protection. Not because anything is wrong.

    • Adena have u received your letter yet??

  • I filed 2/1 WMR says my refund is still processing and I will receive a date! Anybody else having this problem? Has anyone recieved their money without an update on WMR??

  • Seems like everyone else has received a delivery date. I filed since 1/31 and all I have is a message saying it’s being processed. Anyone else filed early and still no update ?

    My refund is scheduled to be deposited in to my account on the 22nd of February . But the wmr bar doesnt say sent yet and i called H&R Block and they don’t see anything pending in my account. Should i be worried?

  • why are the hr block people getting the same dd thats crap I thought they would still be good to use this year its showing that all the extra money should not be wasted on them free tax e file people everywhere are getting all there refunds before hr blocks segregated people bull shit

  • If you have a 2/22 DDD and get it On 2/21 or on 2/22 can you post it here? I have a 1
    2/22 DDD and am just seeing how it turns out or if I’ll be delayed.

    I have a DDD of 2/22. Called my CU and they confirmed it is pending and It will probably be deposited into my account on the 21st. If you are concerned and have a DDD call your bank and ask them to check for pending ACH they probably will also give you an amount, mine did.

    I just checked informed delivery from usps and my check arrives today. I filed on 1/29 with TT and was accepted the same day. My wmr status started with processing then went to Path message, then to the “is being processed” message and finally to this “Your tax refund is scheduled to be mailed by February 26, 2018. If you do not receive the r…[Read more]

    I saw your post about having relatives that work for the IRS, and thought I would ask you a question that I cant seem to get a clear answer on. I received the CP75 notice, wanting me to verify HOH status, dependents and EIC. The letter states they are holding the EITC and/or the ACTC credit portion of my refund. I did pay in taxes…[Read more]

    • They will hold the portion for the credit(s) mentioned. After the audit, if the information requested during the audit is verified you will get the remaining balance. If I were you, I would contact a tax advocate to help if this is more than half of your refund. I hope this helps, and good luck.

    I Got a DDD last year and two days later a note popped up that the IRS took my refund back due to Injured Spouse. Needless to say, I don’t breathe relief until it’s in my account.
