not understanding why I haven't gotten my taxes I claim aditional child credit and unearned income credit my friend claim the same she got hers today the IRS website it said that they would be holding all taxes that claimed those two credits until Feb 15th
Yours just aren't done processing.
No one that I know has gotten refunds if they have either one of the above credits due.
Your return and your friend's return are totally separate entities. Don't waste time and energy comparing them as there simply is NO comparison.
While it is true that returns claiming the Earned Income Credit (not "unearned income credit") and the Additional Child Tax Credit are being delayed past Feb 15, it's possible that some will be processed sooner if the taxpayer has a history of properly claiming those credits in prior years, is at the same address as in prior years, and has never had a claim adjusted or denied in the past. All new claims and all claims showing a different address from prior years as well as added or deleted dependents and any other potential tax fraud indicators WILL be delayed.
