If you are checking the status of your refund and you get the message above, don’t panic. This is what is being called the PATH Act message. All this means is that you are receiving either the Additional Child Tax Credit Or the Earned Income Credit. Under The PATH Act the IRS will not begin to send those refunds out till 7-21 days from the 15th of February. So just try and be patient as your refund will be here soon. If march 9th passes and you still do not have your refund you can call the IRS @ 1-800-829-1040 and ask for clarification on the delay.
