Millions of people could experience a delay receiving their tax refund.

The problems this year include a backlog of 2019 returns the IRS could not process after closing offices due to the pandemic.

Tax returns that may be most impacted by the delay are those that need a correction due to changes made by the recovery rebate credit or those that need to verify income for the earned income tax credit and additional child tax credit.
