  • If you and/or your spouse have earned income, whether from employment or self-employment, you may be eligible for large tax refunds [also known as “returns”] averaging $2,400 per family.  Filling your tax return is the only way to claim these benefits.
  • No matter what you do, the IRS will not begin processing your income tax forms until Monday, January 29.  Don’t be pressured by scam artists who promise fast refunds or refund anticipation products with hidden fees.  Changes in federal law mean that you won’t receive your refund from the IRS until late February if you claim either the earned income tax credit or the additional child tax credit.
