I recently recieved a notice from IRS CP27. It says i may be entitled to the EIC funds I didnt request.?

Asked by: minchk 452 views YA Discussion

Does this mean I am going to recieve another check from the IRS and if so how long until I recieve it?? Has anyone else had this happen? If so did you recieve an additional check and how long until you received it?
Im single with no children. Paid less than 2000 in so i believe i do qualify. How long should I wait before I contact them its been nearly 3 weeks since ive sent the cp27 notice back
I meet all the requirements and have already sent it back. Wondering if anyone else has had this and how to should I expect it take before I recieve an additional check

    Read IRS pub 596 very carefully.

    If you are 25-65 and live alone and your income was low, yes you can qualify.
    If you are living with someone and they claim EIC, you might not be able to if you *could* have claimed the same child but didn’t.

    Disgusting. I pay around $ 70k in taxes every year and they never ask me if I missed a deduction or want some money back. Obama’s America… Pay nothing in but claim a credit and get money back.

    Not that simple because you do have to be able to QUALIFY for some of the EITC by meeting all of the required rules that you will have meet at this time in your life in order to get any amount of the EITC at this time. So very carefully and slowly read the enclosed information and the form that you will be required to fill out at this time and try to make sure that you really do meet all of the rules and then fill out the form and send it back to them at that time in your life.
