    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.

    You have been connected to 04_Kirk W.
    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.

    This is a two part post.. Did anyone see this post on the home page feed?
    Cliffy Says:
    February 5, 2013 at 4:08 pm
    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.

    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.

How about getting all your ducks in a row and having everything good to go by January 15th every year. If congress makes changes, they should have to wait until the following year.. good or bad.

    IRS Calls from Feb 4, 2013:

    IRS Agent name: Dennis Ragen (call 1)
    badge number: 2627475
    Aren’t processing until mid Feb. Don’t need to take addition action at this time. Wouldn’t give any information about return at all.

    IRS Agent Name: Mrs. Rickman (call 2)
    Badge #: 0584322
    Told them I wanted to confirm banking information.
    Accepted 1/24:
    Normal processing time is 3 weeks. If nothing, has to adhere to that time frame. *bunch of bull*
    Do have return, is being processed, refund is $1707.
    What they have on the 8863 issues: if the IRS received before Jan 27, will hold until mid Feb. even though they are “processing” they aren’t really processing. Apparently any dates given (2/7, 2/11 or 2/15) weren’t given by her, and as such, she can’t answer why they are being given out.

    Did they explain projected date to you? The lady I spoke to last week that told me projected date could not tell me if that’s when it will start processing, finish processing or DD.

    I just got off the phone with the IRS and they stated I have a projected date of the 11th for a refund. Lets see how true that is, hope so. If you call the IRS do not tell them that you filed the 8863. And when they ask you to chek online, tell them you cant get on, and they will review your file and let you know what is your projected date. Good Luck everyone!

    I was accepted on 1/25 with form 8863. My State return finished final processing stage on 1/31. It says my State will be mailed on or before 2/14, so I am thinking our Federal returns with 8863 form will arrive right around 2/11.

    @CHRISTIE yeah It looks like they are staying from the back and working up. Also from what I noticed in the main forum, SNAPS said her friend that’s a rep or something says the early accepted 8863ers (ones th3at didn’t get rejected) should receive something within the next 7 days. When you scroll up in this forum, a lot of people said they have projected dates for the 11th or irs will start processing by the 11th. If you look at it, 7 days from Monday makes the 11th so Ihave faith that we should be okay :-)

    Im a 8863 filer I filed january 7 and got accepted january 24 mine still says processing my hope is that they are processing ours and will start issuing refunds on the 11 and 15 which would actually be 21 days for those of us accepted early just a hope and a hunch

    I am in the same boat. Filed on the 10th, accepted late on the 24th (so really the 25th) and still sitting at one bar. All because of this form. :(

    I think they started taking the last in before 1/30 8863s first.. Ours were prob the ones that tripped the error :-(

    First in = First out. At least that’s how it should be. We were at the head of the line and because they screwed up and was not able to process our returns – we are being punished and have to wait???? Exactly what I would expect from a non-efficient government agency. NOTHING EVER MAKES ANY SENSE!!!!

    I was accepted 1/25 and still no DD. Still waiting…says 21 days blah, blah, blah. We are people who need our money too! Sh*t!

    Just an update here. For those of u who have the 8863 form, if u are on hold and wish to refile w/out the form best to do so with the same software that u used first.the irs only acknowledges the last return filed. Where as if u use 2different programs, the retufn without the form will get accspted and processed. Then the return on hold will get sent when its time…will put you at risk for fraud audit! Hope this helps :)

    I am a fellow 8863 er . I filed 1/10 accepted 1/24. Been lurking non-stop since 1/25. Please see the post I found on TT forums. A person posted an email they received from TT stating they are now processing 8863 forms. You will have to scroll down through many posts. It says she posted it 4 hours ago.

    heard that if you were not accepted you could go to a different tax prep company and file through them without 8863 and IF that one gets accepted the pending one with 8863 will be rejected. Once you receive your refund you can then file an amended return with the 8863 form for the balance of the refund due you. Hope that helps.

    Hello, I efiled my taxes online with hrblock on jan 30th with the 8863 form. (because i wasn’t aware of the delay on the form obviously, or i would have filled regular, and amended later for my education portion.) Anyways, I received the email below from hrblock on feb 1st:

    We’ve received your e-filed return. The IRS has notified us that it won’t be accepting returns that include certain forms until later. This delay is industry-wide, regardless of tax preparation method.
    Your return contains 1 of these forms. Until the IRS is ready, your return is being stored on our secure servers.
    The IRS will begin processing returns with this form in mid-February. To learn more, see the IRS Form 8863 press release.
    Form 8863: Education Credits (American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning credits)
    The IRS will begin processing returns with these forms in late February or early March. To learn more about these forms, see the IRS press release.
    Form 4562: Depreciation and Amortization
    Form 8396: Mortgage Interest Credit
    Form 8582: Passive Activity Loss Limitations
    If you prepared a state return, it will also be held. Your federal return must be accepted by the IRS before you can file your state return.
    We’re monitoring the situation closely. As soon as the IRS updates its system, we’ll send your return immediately. We’ll send you an e-mail with the status of your return(s) once the IRS – and the state office, if applicable – processes it.
    ————– end of email

    So my question is… does anyone know if its okay to go to another tax service and file my taxes (without form 8863)??? since hrblock says they are just storing my taxes in their database… and its not officially at the irs yet.

    Thanks!

    I was also accepted on the 24th and still “processing” Spoke to a IRS agent and he told me its suspended until the 15th..then it will start processing again. I am just praying that they are just allowing a cushion for their-selves and its true that they have started SLOWLY processing the 8863s. Hoping for good news with a DD soon!!!!

    Im getting so frustrated with this…I filed 8863 on 1/26 and never even got accepted so now TT is just holding my return…so I have absolutely no clue what to even expect. I would be content with just an accepted status at this point! Grrr….guess thats what I get for being organized and filing early :/

    my theory is they are going to take the taxes they have on hold already that they did accept like mine on the 24th(8863 yes)or jarons mothers and use us as test dummies and if they go through we will have our return in 3 days direct deposit couple weeks papercheck.or if you filed later and just held in longo they will tell you a couple weeks.

    @jarons mother is that a projected date for deposit or processing?? Looking at another post they said the IRS will send them through on the 11th and refunds will go out for them starting a few weeks after that. I truly hope not!

    When I spoke with the irs rep I was told 8863 form filers should start being sent through on the 11th. If all checks out and there isnt any flags that refunds will go out for them starting a few weeks after that.

    hello my fellow 8863’rs nice to meet you all… messed up we had to have a support group for this but here goes

    Filed on the 7th accepted the 23rd (still processing)
    State MI still waiting acceptance
    No info for WMR…(think I got a little too jumpy and checked to much lol)
    I have two question
    1. what is this transcript everyone is talking about? and can I have a link
    2. if the recorded message says you should receive your refund within 21 days does that mean that the only thing holding us up is the 8863?

    I’m trying not to loose my mind here mainly because of my state i knew sunday about the hold up on the form.. but for some reason I haven’t been accepted (filed on the 12th) still awaiting acceptance… I called the treasury dept and can not get passed the automated bs… and it keeps telling me my AGI is wrong? is this happening to anyone else?
