    You either claimed Head of Household, EIC and or Child care credit. Any of the three are causing returns to under review. 21 billion lost last year to false claims thus the extra scrutiny this year

    It means they don’t trust the numbers you self-reported as being on your W-2. They are verifying the EIN, the employer name, address, the amounts in each box, etc. If they cannot reach your employer, they may wait until the W-2 is received by the IRS (say June) before releasing the refund.

    When your taxes go “Under Review” it is not the end of the world but it could mean a huge delay in getting any refund that’s due by 45-60 days. Due to all the “software” complications I wouldn’t expect to have a resolution until close to the end of tax season. The other answer were correct, EIC, EIN, and other claimed Dependents are usually the main triggers for a deeper look. If you take a look on the notice that was sent, or go to the WMR tool, they usually give you a code you can look at, to narrow down your suspicion. In the mean time, have all of your ducks in a row, and be ready to validate any person or item you claimed on your return, if you have this information in tact, it will move the process along faster. Good Luck.
