The Immoral Robbery Swindlers, er, the Internal Revenue Service, has made an announcement that is sure to disappoint those who are expecting two very common types of tax refunds this year.
More than 40 million low-income families who claim the earned income tax credit (EITC) and the additional child tax credit (ACTC) will get those refunds later than expected.
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen wrote on the agency’s website:
In an effort to make it easier for the IRS to detect and prevent refund fraud, Congress passed a new law that requires the IRS to hold refunds claiming those credits until February 15th. But this doesn’t mean you should wait to file until then. Taxpayers claiming the EITC or ACTC should file as soon as they have all of the necessary documentation together
