      Food For Thought?? Something I posted on FB, “I Got My Refund Page.” Comments????

      I am a fellow 8863’r. I filed with turbo tax on the 21rst, and was accepted on the 25th. I finally broke down and called the IRS myself today. The lady I had was extremely cordial. However, she mentioned that tax returns that include 8863 might not be processed until LATE FEBRUARY OR EARLY MARCH. I wanted to cry. I know that all the reps from the IRS are giving us all different stories, but just wanted to share mine!

      I wanted to add one more thing…Like many of you, I decided to file as soon as I received my tax information. Largely I did this because Turbo Tax reassured me that by filing early, I would be the, “first in line to get my refund faster.” When speaking to the IRS rep, I told her that had I known about the 8863 form delay, I would have opted to leave it out since it did not effect my refund by a huge amount. This IRS lady told me that they informed ALL TAX PREPARERS about allowing customers to file early because of the end of the year fiasco. As you all recall, the form was delayed on the 28th. Had I waited until the 30th, opening day, I would not be in this mess. She specifically told me that all of the “big name” tax preparation companies were informed of this. So, I, myself, hold Turbo Tax partly responsible. Last year, I remember that a number of early filers were delayed as well. This will not happen again next year. I will wait until a day or two after opening. Even if it means I wait a week, its certainly better than waiting for a month and a half.

      And just one more final thought….A number of people have commented that it is common knowledge for the IRS to, “accept a few returns early to test their software.” When I filed our taxes, I was told by turbo tax that OUR refund would be submitted to the IRS on the 30th, the first day the IRS was starting to accept refunds. Never in any fine print did I notice anything about authorizing them to submit my return early in order to be a, “test subject.” Again, the news of the 8863 was announced on the 28th. Had TT waited until the 30th to submit our returns, I could have possibly called them and perhaps did something about omitting that form. It was my understanding that even though I filed on the 21rst, my return would be HELD by TT until the IRS began accepting returns. I don’t know about you all, but I think of tax time as my Christmas! I patiently count down the days until tax time as it is the one time of year I am able to splurge on something nice for our family. I would not have CHOSEN to roll the dice basically and be a test subject, especially knowing about the financial cliff crap at the end of the year.
