If your 2020 federal tax return included a “Recovery Rebate Credit” – claiming the portion of the first two economic stimulus payments that you were entitled to but did not receive
If you (or your tax preparer) used your 2019 Earned Income in calculating your 2020 Earned Income Credit or Additional Child Tax Credit
You are requesting a refund on your return -
Be advised that the IRS will take longer to process the return and your refund will be delayed.
So, don’t call or email your tax pro and complain that you haven’t received your refund.
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING YOUR TAX PREPARER CAN DO TO EXPEDITE THE RECEIPT OF A REFUND.
