If you claim the earned income tax credit (EITC) or the additional child tax credit (ACTC) on your tax return, the IRS must hold your refund until at least February 15 — even the portion not associated with EITC or ACTC.

After you file your return, the best way to track your refund is Where's My Refund? or the IRS2Go mobile app.

The IRS participates on the following social media platforms, including:

  • YouTube:  The IRS has video channels that provide short, informative videos on various tax related topics in English, American Sign Language (ASL) and a variety of foreign languages.
  • Twitter:  IRS tweets include various tax-related announcements, news for tax professionals and hiring initiatives.
  • Facebook:  IRS has Facebook pages that post valuable tax information for tax professionals and those needing help in resolving long standing issues with the IRS. 
  • Tumblr:  The IRS Tumblr blog posts important tax information and announcements that link to IRS.gov and YouTube content.

 

Note that the IRS will never:

  • Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. Generally, the IRS will first mail you a bill if you owe any taxes.
  • Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
  • Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
  • Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.

The IRS is providing help to the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Special tax relief and assistance is available to taxpayers in the Presidential Disaster Areas.
