A 1040 tax form appears on display, Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, in New York.

For those claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will not start releasing your refund until Feb. 15. Over the last few years, identity theft via small but fraudulent claims to the credits have grown into a multi-billion dollar problem.

This year, the IRS is taking precautions to prevent some of these nightmares. Still, the IRS aims to issue most refunds to taxpayers within 21days–that is, if you filed your return electronically.

Below is the schedule and resources, but remember they are estimates.

The “Where’s My Refund?” tool can be used as a guide as to when you can expect to receive your tax refund. Also, there’s an IRS2Go. mobile app.
