H&R block messed up my tax return by not filling out the 8863 form correctly. They also left out a page. Now i must wait to receive a letter from the IR stating whats wrong with my return. I have to take this to H&R block and have them make the correction and fax back to IRS. This has caused a major delay in my getting my return..i want my prep fees returned to me since you idiots cant file correctly! I am contacting every agency i can think of including the Attorney General,State representatives.

Why didn't you just use the program on the computer and do it yourself? Some are free, but I paid for the extra for h&R block and already received my refund.

I've contacted both the IRS and HR block regarding delays due to system error. It is completely ridiculous as well as unprofessional to find out my tax refund has been delayed a month after filing with no word from HR Block!!! To make matters worse once contacting the IRS I find out that my return isn't even processing, HR Block released a statement stating all affected person refund would start processing as of March 9th. HR Block most definitely has drop the ball, the IRS as of the 11th stated no action had been taking as there are waiting for instruction Neither have any any refund answers as to when refunds will be direct deposited!!! I contacted a supervisor at the IRS whom stated that HR Block is at fault and referred me to them. I've initiated a request for my filing fees to be waived/refunded. I WILL get not ONLY my tax refund due but my fees back.!!! If HR Block knows like I know they will make this right and FAST!!!!

bro i am right in that boat with you. i filed jan 19th (always early as i dont like to rush). anyways still nothing. i called hr block and they stated it's processing and receive by 21st of feb. i became suspicious when where's my refund and no info regarding me. upon contacting the irs they stated the 8863 form was messed up with missing info. it was only this morning i heard on the radio that hr block dropped the ball. low and behold in my email was a nice letter stating it's being worked on and resubmitted. but thanks for bringing up the fee's issue. i'm going to give them an earful @ 9am when they open up. funny how every time i called hr block they neglected to say anything.

I heard this morning on the news that it was a glitch in the H&R software and the ones affected are the ones that required that education credit form. Said it would be another 6 weeks before those would get their refund.

Why not have your taxes done by a professional or use turbo tax and do them yourself?

I'm in the same situation..and hr block is supposed to be guaranteed that's why I use them..u kno the peace of mind bit? Well lesson learned ..I will be doing them myself or hiring an accountant next year..everyone should file a civil suit against them since WE have to finish them up..and they will take they're 300 dollar prep. Fee right off the top no matter what...which in my opinion is not right since they did not prepare them correctly.. I just want MY money.

I'm right there with you guys. I was promised I would receive my return within 8-14 days from the date I filed which was January 30th, and still have not seen a dime. Now I am about to lose my new house I just put nearly $5k down on the end of January. I've had other living expenses that I've had to pay and then I was out of work for about 2 weeks in the hospital without pay, so now making rent is impossible, if I had my income tax refund I would have no worries making rent, but I don't. So, with that being said, my children and I are going to have to pack up and leave this nice house I just invested a lot of money into and move into a tiny 2 bedroom apt, because until I receive my refund that is all I can afford. I want my fees back that they charged me AND I will NEVER use them again. Sad because I've been using them for 9 years now...

I live in alabama and I had the education credit and h and r block refused to tell me what happened. They blamed the IRS for it. I filed Jan 22 and received an early approval jan 25 thru h and r block. After 21 days I called and they said some were taking longer, so I called the IRS to see if there had been an issue. They said no i had an education credit and those started later than regular taxes. H and R block did not tell me this. I also had to wait another 21 days to find out my return was messed up. So I went to h and r block and they could not tell me what was wrong with them( which they tell me if there is an error code we will call you immediatly..which is a lie, They never called me I had to call them) I would also like to know how to get your fees back because I paid 300 bucks to someone to know how to do my taxes, and they obviously did not. But I am set to get my return back monday is nothing happens.

Sorry to say this, but it's your responsibility to check each and every entry on your tax form BEFORE you sign it. I've gone to the same person for over 15 years and I still check every entry every year. Last year I caught a 2,000 error. It was an oversight. They are human. Hope you get your refund soon!

H&R Block filed my taxes for me and instead of getting the estimated amount of $4700 back I only ended up with a refund of $1396. H&R Block said that I did not qualifiy for the EIC. Well, come to find out H&R Block had me as a non resident alien, instead of a US Citizen. And they have done my taxes for the past four years.I was fortunate enough to get a letter from the IRS saying that I am able to get my EIC. I just need to fill out the paperwork they sent me and send it back to them. Which I did five weeks ago. Should H&R Block have to give me my tax filling fees back. They charged me almost $400 to do my taxes this year?

Call 1-800-HRBLOCK. They won't be able to refund what you paid in the office immediately, but they'll be able to get you the information you need to request a refund!
