PATH Act

A new tax law requires the IRS to hold entire refunds of millions of taxpayers until at least Feb. 15. This law, called the PATH Act, contains provisions that help combat tax fraud and may impact approximately 15 million taxpayers who claim the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit. For those who file early, they will have to wait until at least Feb. 15 to get their full refund from the IRS.

While the IRS will release those refunds on February 15, many taxpayers may not see the funds deposit into their banking accounts until the week of February 27. This additional delay could be for many reasons and it is best for taxpayers to check the IRS’s Where’s My Refund website for any funding updates.

This resource guide provides information to help media and consumers understand the impact of the PATH Act.
