    Your tax return is still being processed.

    A refund date will be provided when available.

    Anyone else have this?

    WMR and the 800# still say they can’t find me. We filed with HRB on 1/31 with the 8863. I had no idea there was a hold up on that form and still feel gypped that HRB didn’t flash some window and tell me there would be a delay before I hit the final button. But that’s a gripe for another forum. :-) Anyhow, they sent an email 2/2 to tell me I would be delayed. My file says “transmitted” on HRB and I never could get an IRS person to verify whether it had been received on their server. HRB has held up our state return also. So, at this point, I must believe HRB when they tell me they will send it through on 2/14. If I don’t get some kind of confirmation on 2/14 I’m going to go crazy because I feel like my stuff is just out in cyberspace somewhere. Very unsettling feeling like this. I know God isn’t going to let my family be put on the street or shut the lights off. Not even close. We are fortunate. It’s just that momma needs a new car! :-) Best to all with filing this week and swift deposits!

    I am not sure what to really beleive on this site. There are so many speculations and hopeful wishing. All is know is that the system will be def. ready 2/14/12. As for those of us who were “accepted” before 1/28/13. I just know i better not have to wait an additional 21 days after the 14 days. I will continue to say a prayer for us early 8863 and for those who have a dd please stop complaing that you still have 2 days and want your bank to release ur money early its pissing me off. Lets hang in there 8863’s!!!!

    Ok, I have been stalking this page for a while, so I thought I might as well chime in. I filed on the 26th with TaxAct, went from “federal Return Received” for a couple days and then when we found output the delay on the 8863 I changed to “Awaiting Acceptance”. So, from what I have read I think that means that TA hasn’t even sent it to the IRS yet, is that correct? I see alot of people talk about what TT says, but not many people with TA. I am hoping that my return will sent over earlier than the 14th, but at this point, I am not counting on anything.
    Oh, and the last time I check with WMR (a few days ago), it says they have no info with me. I am praying we all have our refunds soon!!!

    @ theconners4 I sure hope so because I also was accepted on 1/26/13 with the education credit. I am still stuck on 1 orange bar. I can not order either transcripts and I sure hope that we do not ahve to wait another 21 days after 2/14/13 when everyone else is able to use form 8863. I havent called any one and I am getting more than anxious.

    Well lets hope she is right theconners4!! I havent even bothered calling the IRS, but if I dont know anything , I may just end up calling myself.. I would hope that once they start processing, the ones that were accepted early and held because of the 8863, will be run through first. Who knows I may call if I havent seen any updates on mine, maybe by next Friday, but a toss up on which number to call to get a nice person lol.

    Hey guys. I called the holds # and was put through to a very nice lady who told me I was not in the system AT ALL and to RE-FILE lol. Uh wth?? So I called the ext 362 number and spoke with an amazing woman who actually gave me some info. She took all of my information and put me on hold. When she came back she said they HAVE me return, I do not have to re-file. It is at a tax station and then asked me if we filed an education credit. I said yes and she said that makes sense then. She could see I was accepted on the 26th and thought that was a long time to wait but said it makes sense after I told her we had education credits. She said issues with education credits have been resolved and they are starting to process these returns. She told me I “should” have a DD next week. Obviously this is just a guess from her but still, it’s hope.

    Call 2:
    Agent: Mrs. Turner
    Badge: 0726302
    Received: Jan 25 (though TT states it was accepted on 1/24)
    Projected should have been 2/11
    Won’t get an updated after 2/15
    Return is there, just sitting there. Won’t be processed until after 2/15
    Processes Everyday except Sunday.
    Probably won’t see refund until 1st/2nd March.

    The form list updated on IRS.gov last night. I spoke to TT a couple times as well in the past couple days and they told me that my return should be accepeted late next week (14/15). Who knows anymore, but this seems to be in-line with what the IRS said from the begining.

    Looks like there is a date of 2/13 for the irs form 8863 to become available. I’ve been looking for updates. But, this seems like the first concrete piece of information issued by the irs.

    Filed the 28th myself and still pending on TT. Hopefully my return will be accepted on the 13th. Still not holding out hope that people who file 2/15 don’t get their refunds sooner than me. Seems to always work out like that when you get stuck in delays.

    04_Kirk W: Hi Erica, thank you for your patience. I’m here to help you today. Give me just a few seconds to read your question.
    04_Kirk W: What is your exact question?
    Erica O: I wanted to check the status of my refund- WMR with the IRS isn’t giving any info on the status. Have you received any updates regarding this form #### that I hear could be the cause for delay on my refund?
    04_Kirk W: More than likely.
    04_Kirk W: Here is a link to our support site article explaining the situation:

    http://turbotax.intuit.com/support/iq/Education/IRS-Delays-Processing-Returns-With-Form-8863–Education-Credits/GEN83271.html

    Note: Don’t worry if your tax return includes these education credits and has already been accepted by the IRS. You don’t need to do anything on your end. We will communicate with you directly to let you know when we are transmitting your return to the IRS – right now, we expect that to be in mid-February. Once your return has been accepted by the IRS, you can expect to receive your refund in 21 days or less.
    Erica O: Yes I have read the “generic” article-lol do you know the status on my particular refund- does it show in your system
    Erica O: if mine is pending or if irs has it?
    04_Kirk W: Can you confirm the physical address and date of birth on the return?
    Erica O: #### ##### ##//####
    04_Kirk W: It looks like they pre accepted your return on the 25th which was 3 days before they made the decisions that they could not process the form 8863. Unfortunately your return is stuck untill they figure that out probably by the middle of this month.
    Erica O: oh ok- darn it! last question for you- a coworker says turbo tax found out from the IRS that they will be accepting these forms on feb 7th- can you confirm this update?
    04_Kirk W: I cannot. That is the date we are putting out a patch for some other common issues this year. However, form 8863 is entirely the IRS’s issue to fix. In other words, we are just as in the dark as you are.
    Erica O: gotcha, thanks so much for your help
    04_Kirk W: You are welcome! Have a great day!

    If you can do that msjoyok, then go for it.. Some of us who filed early, such as the 24th like me, and were “accepted” by the IRS, we cant go to another compaany and resubmit without the 8863. But anyone who filed after the 28th, and was never accepted by the IRS, then yes I belive you can do that…

    I filed on the 30 and I am pending on TT, I’ve seen where you can go to another company and submit without using the form, get approved and amend later once the irs fixes the form. Some people are saying they’ve had success, I’ll let you know

    Yeah, and that article says the 8917 form is delayed, and every other article I have seen, including on the IRS site, says that form is ok, and just not the 8863.. That article might of been from last year, as there was a delay last year, if memory serves me correctly….

    If you notice, that article says nothing about 8863, which leads me to once again to think it is just someone taking the mid-Feb phrase and making up their own article.

    If this were the case, we would be hearing the same thing from the MAJOR prep companies, not some obscure company I’ve never heard of.

    So I found this on FB

    The Internal Revenue Service plans a Feb. 14 start date for processing tax returns delayed by last month’s tax law changes. The IRS reminded taxpayers affected by the delay they can begin preparing their tax returns immediately because many software providers are ready now to accept these returns.

    Beginning Feb. 14, the IRS will start processing both paper and e-filed returns claiming itemized deductions on Schedule A, the higher education tuition and fees deduction on Form 8917 and the educator expenses deduction. Based on filings last year, about nine million tax returns claimed any of these deductions on returns received by the IRS before Feb. 14.
    People using e-file for these delayed forms can get a head start because many major software providers have announced they will accept these impacted returns immediately. The software providers will hold onto the returns and then electronically submit them after the IRS systems open on Feb. 14 for the delayed forms.
    Taxpayers using commercial software can check with their providers for specific instructions. Those who use a paid tax preparer should check with their preparer, who also may be holding returns until the updates are complete.
    Most other returns, including those claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), education tax credits, child tax credit and other popular tax breaks, can be filed as normal, immediately.
    The IRS needed the extra time to update its systems to accommodate the tax law changes without disrupting other operations tied to the filing season. The delay followed the Dec. 17 enactment of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010, which extended a number of expiring provisions including the state and local sales tax deduction, higher education tuition and fees deduction and educator expenses deduction.

    I just got off the phone with my CPA who did my taxes. His office has just received an email from the IRS this morning around 10am, stating form 8863 may now be delayed until the second week of March and under any circumstances to not submit any more 8863 forms until notified by the IRS.

    I am taking it as a grain of salt.. at this point there is so much hearsay floating around that I am not believing anything until the IRS puts a new press release out.

    2nd part
    I filed 1/30 late in the day and was promptly sent an email notice from TT that the my federal return was not sent to the I.R.S as they were not accepting form 8863. The email stated that once the I.R.S notified TT that they were accepting the form they would send my efile to them. Fast Forward to today 2/5 I called TT to see if my return was transmitted or if they still have the return held. The lady on the phone was clueless she finally came back and said that my efile was batched to the I.R.S and they have it. I am not really hurting for my return as others are, I am going to use it to go on vacation in May. I am just trying to confirm what the status of the efile is NOT the return. I honestly believe TT just forced all of the returns to the I.R.S refusing to listen, which in turn will cause the I.R.S to reject all returns and make us all re-file which will make us wait until later this year for returns.

    I can’t refile with another company, as I am one of the “lucky” ones that was sent to the IRS early and accepted on the 25th. I found out about the delay on the 28th. Again, had I know that my return was going to be filed early, I would have opted to wait it out. From past experience, it always seems to me that you are taking a chance filing early and opting to be the person that they, “test their systems on.” I lurked on this page last year and can remember several early filers complaining that their returns were delayed because of filing early. I was livid when I learned that the IRS warned big named preparers early that forms were not finalized and that they had advised preparers against sending returns in early because of the fiscal cliff fiasco. When I filed, I was told that my return would be first in line when, “THE IRS BEGINS ACCEPTING RETURNS ON THE 30TH.” Instead, I should have been told, “WE MIGHT SEND YOUR RETURN IN EARLY AND YOUR RETURN MIGHT OR MIGHT NOT BE PROCESSED EARLY. IT ALL DEPENDS, OF COURSE, IF THE IRS GETS THEIR S*** TOGETHER IN TIME.” I do not believe for one minute that the tax preparers were not told in advance of a possible problem BEFORE continuing to accept and file early returns. Perhaps the small preparers were left out of the loop, but not the bigger companies. That particular form affects too many tax payers. They had to have known.

    Any updates on the actual date the IRS will start to post the delayed forms? I’m not a 8863, I have a form 8859 (DC Home buyer) but I’m in the same boat, or maybe a worse one, since mine isn’t expected to be ready until late Feb – early March.

    I have had the same issues with different stories. I cant get a straight answer from anyone. I spooke with the IRS today and they said they dont even have my tax return that i filed on 1-30-13. Then I spoke with Turbo Tax and the lady was a complete idiot and wanted to tell me that the return was pending in their system…which I already knew. She could not tell me if the IRS has actually recieved my return or not even though when i chatted online with a turbo tax agent they told me the IRS had indeed received it. So I dont know if Turbo Tax is just holding the returns or if the IRS just wont tell you that they have received it because they can not process it. I was also told that it is still Mid Feb for the processing but she would not tell me anymore than that.
