I have some client use PYEI in tax 2020. Some got the refund exactly what we calculate but some got the refund with EITC just base on 2020 earned income. IRS told them that they will send out explanation letter later for them. All of the them are return client so I am sure that I use the exactly 2019 earned income to apply for PYEI.
Is there anyone have the same problem like me?
You know that and I know that. But it doesn't solve the problem. And the problem might be shared by thousands of other single parents trying to make ends meet.
Without seeing the return, it's difficult to figure out what happened. Taxpayer Advocate Service might be able to help, given six months or so. Is there a low-income taxpayer clinic available?
