I have never posted to one of these forums before. I am hoping someone can help though. I got stuck filing the 8863 education credits form before the IRS pulled their little stunt. I am having a heck of a time trying to find a date of when these returns will be done. I filed on 1/26 and have yet to even be acknowledged. I am just looking for some truthful answers. Please Help!

I am in the same situation. I actually went to the IRS website and under News there is information that they are working on a software issue with this form and expect to have the issue resolved Mid-February. At that point they will start excepting the tax returns with an intisipated refund date of early March. Hope this helps.

I dont know if this helps, but when i filed my return online in Illinois I was told that they would hold my return until the middle of February because that is when the IRS will start accepting those returns with education credits/

I suggest on the 14th you call your preparer and remind them to re-submit your taxes.

I was one of the people who's form was accepted previous to the notice the irs put up. my tax preparer first told me i needed to amend my taxes and then told me i was accepted and i didn't have to do anything. does anyone else have any information in regards to this issue?

For u people that r looking for answers. There has not been a single soul in the entire USA to have or will receive their Federal Tax Return filed with certain forms. U may go n check what type of forms r being held for processing without a date on IRS.COM . If u already submitted or efiled ur tax return, u can NOT re- submit ur form again unless u delete thise forms that r on hold being processed by the IRS. u can re-do ur tax return simple just with ur wages, dependents etc and u will get ur refund within 7 to 10 days. The. U can amend ur tax return with the forms like the education credit form 8863 or ur business taxes (which r also on hold) along other forms, and mail ur amended form by mail, n wen the system is available for processing, u will get the difference of ur refund. People, stop believing stories and look up the info on the IRS website! IT IS FREE AND U WILL FIND ALL UR ANSWERS THERE!

U will get a message stating that u will receive ur refund within 21days if u filed the forms that were not being processed till Feb the 14th. The 21st day will actually be March the 11th if u was accepted within 3 days. So untill March 11 comes by, we will c if IRS has kept their word. Unfortunately if we were to owe them money, their system would of been updated way b4 the tax season began!!!!!
