Millions of Americans benefit every year from tax credits like the child tax credit from the IRS.
Unfortunately, credits like the child tax credit and earned income tax credit make refunds take longer.
This is for those that chose direct deposit as their option.
You may track your refund using the Where’s My Refund tool on the IRS website.
I haven’t received my refund from my child tax credit
Refunds for anyone that claimed the CTC or EITC cannot be issued until after mid-February.
This is to help avoid tax fraud.
You may have claimed these credits and the IRS needs more information from you.
In that case, you’ll be sent a letter and need to respond, which will take time.
If you filed your return early on and claimed either of these tax credits, you may be in luck.
Those who filed ahead of schedule and claimed the child tax credit may see their refunds as early as Feb. 19.
