The taxpayers who have filed tax returns claiming extra credits like Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)/ Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) may have faced delays in their tax refunds due to the federal PATH Act

The EITC is for those people who work part-time or full-time, they can have extra cash in their pocket with this tax break. The federal PATH Act or Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act has restricted the IRS from proceeding with the tax refunds of taxpayers who have claimed EITC/ ACTC credits.
