Things to know for your taxes for the 2017 filing year:

Some taxpayers will have their tax refunds delayed. A new law requires the IRS to hold refunds tied to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) until February 15.

The hold allows IRS to match information from forms W-2 and 1099 with information reported on tax returns; in prior years, refunds could be issued before forms were matched which increased the likelihood of fraud. The hold, together with bank processing times and bank holidays, means that taxpayers should not count on seeing those tax refunds until the week of February 27.

9 of 10 people filing will receive their tax refund in less than 21 days!

After you file you can use the IRS tool “Where's my refund?" to track the progress of your tax return. There is also an app available for download from Google Play and the Apple Store.

Remember to also use a secure browser when filing your taxes. Make sure to verify your filing information and keep an eye for your refund.

Start the year off right and calculate your current debt to income ratio and make it a goal to lower for 2018.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
