As we head into the final month of the year, many of us are focused on holiday shopping. Yet, as soon as January rolls around, we shift our mindset to begin thinking about taxes. For those with a refund coming, it’s definitely something to celebrate. Although, this year, the new PATH act means refund delays for 26 million consumers. Fortunately, Express Refund Advance can you an advance on your refund as early as December 15th! And that means you will have money to spend for the holidays!
Express Refund Advance
The PATH act will specifically affect taxpayers who receive the earned income tax credit (EIC) or the additional child tax credit (ACTC). These refunds will be processed no earlier than February 15, 2017, and that delay can be challenging for some. For several years, Colby and I looked forward to our tax refund so that we could get ahead of our bills for a few months. Knowing that we could file as early as possible and have the money in the bank in just a few days was essential to our way of living. That one big lump payment through our tax refund help to offset our paycheck-to-paycheck lifestyle throughout the rest of the year.
