#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Why did my score drop?

It’s not unusual for your credit score to change periodically, but if your score dropped significantly it may be worth a closer look.

Since Credit Karma doesn’t calculate your score (TransUnion provides us with that information), we aren’t able to tell you specifically why it changed. If you want to know more, though, you might want to:

  1. Review your credit reports for errors or new activity. Changes to your report could affect your score.
  2. Read up on what factors impact your credit score. While it might not always be possible to find the specific reason(s) your score went down, this article could help you get a better idea of what’s going on.
