So lucky me my much anticipated and very much needed tax return has been put on hold by the lovely IRS. Last year i filed married with my then husband and now we are long over and i have had sole custody since last March. So this year i filed head of household and claimed all the children. APparently this means the IRS is holding my return until i can verify that i have not been living with my ex and that i do have sole custody. I can't imagine my ex filed his taxes using them himself. He pays no child support and told the courts he is unemployed so he would be an a$$ to file using them. I have no problem getting this info to the IRS but does anyone have experience with this and have a time frame for an actual refund? I e-filed Jan. 21st and they only sent me this letter yesterday. I am a single mom to 5 little kids with no child support and needed this money so bad. I can't imagine if i have to wait another few months for this money.
