Our daughter was disallowed from our 06 taxes. I have sent the IRS form8862 in July and got a response in September. I was then asked to send s.s. cards and birth certificates for all 3 children and proof from school or Dr. I sent that information on December 4. I received a letter today stating I had till February 17th to get a reply from them. Why does a review take so long and can I get help to speed up the process?
