Four Reasons Your Refund Might Be Delayed

  1. ​If your homestead credit claim was selected for review​​​

    There are several reasons a homestead credit claim may be selected for review. It does not necessarily mean something is wrong with your claim. Review this page for more information about why your claim may be under review.

  2. If your earned income credit claim was selected for review

    If your earned income credit is selected for review, it may be because we need more information. It does not necessarily mean something is wrong with your claim. Review this page for more information about why your claim may be under review.

  3. If you were selected for identity verification

  4. If we found errors in matching wage information
