#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 ×

What is a thin file?

If you have a thin file, it means the information in your credit report is too limited for the credit bureau to calculate a score. Thin files are most common with people who are young, new to the country or don’t have any open credit accounts. 

If you were able to receive a score in the past but now have a thin file, it could be because you’ve closed your credits cards or loans and now have too few credit lines open to calculate a score.

Even if you have a thin file, you can still review your credit report to make sure the information included is accurate.
