    What does WMR say for those of you who filled with the 8863 form and was accepted? I filled on 24th and accepted 26th with the 8863. WMR says “We are sorry Where’s My Refund is currently unavailable. Please try again later or call the Refund Hotline at 1-800-829-1954.” I’m hoping since we’ve already been accepted and now on hold we’ll be the test batch so we’ll get it back faster then midfebuary.

    The delay is with any return that has Form 8863. And yes, the bug was discovered in the new system after they accepted some early returns. My guess is that it won’t take until mid-February for them to fix the issue, but they are no doubt trying to give themselves some wiggle room. :)

    I keep reading this for 1040, is it any different than for 1040A? Heck, I’m happy to get a refund, so it’s OK if it comes later. I am guessing this bug was found after they started accepting them? Education Credit form has always hung up early filing, I’m surprised we were able to fill it out at all this early.

    https://cisc.sbtpg.com/index.aspx here is the site that lets you check sbbt to see if they have deposited money there from some of the tax preparers
    I have a account now….not sure if that is a good sign or if it is just part of the process…

    Hello, Im a 8863er I filed on 1/18/13 was accepted on 1/25/13. In 2009 I was a victim of ID theft and my taxes were delayed for 3 years from that point on. This year I was told I was able to file with no blocks now Im delayed because of school credits crazy. Let the waiting began.

    this is what I found sunday on the tax wise blog
    IRS EFile: Delayed Processing of Form 8863

    The IRS announced on an industry call with software vendors participating in the Controlled Launch this morning that they would start rejecting any e-file that contains Form 8863 (Education Credits) effective immediately.

    What does this mean for returns that you have already sent to the EFC, but have not been sent to the IRS?

    Any return that you have sent to the EFC that has NOT been transmitted to the IRS that contains Form 8863 will be rejected by the IRS with either Reject F1040-419 or F1040A-419 Form 8863 is not being accepted by Modernized e-File (MeF) at this time .

    Will the EFC reject any e-file that contains Form 8863 to the ERO instead of sending it to the IRS?

    No, we do not crack open the e-files at the EFC, we simply batch them and send them to the IRS. Any efiles already at the EFC will be transmitted to the IRS.

    Will you be issuing an update to the US 1040 module to prevent the e-files from being created?

    Yes, we are working on creating US 1040 v 4 that will prevent you from creating an e-file if the return contains Form 8863

    What will happen to the e-files that the IRS has already accepted that contained Form 8863?

    The accepted e-files that contain Form 8863 will be held for processing by the IRS until internal IRS programming can be made to accomodate the processing of these returns.

    Will this impact when the taxpayer refunds are processed for any accepted returns that contain Form 8863?

    Yes, the accepted returns are being held, which means they will not be sent to refund processing.

    hope this helps a little

    I don’t believe the IRS has decided what they are exactly going to do with the early filers who were accepted with Form 8863. It is likely they will hold them until they can process them.

    There are over 3 million people who file using Form 8863 each year, so this has a huge impact. I doubt this will take long to fix.

    Filed 1/22 accepted 1/26.Form 8863 included in filing. I am a single mother of four, work full time and am a full time student. Just going to wait and see what happens, but I am hoping that those already accepted will be processed before mid Feb to test the fixes to the system. It seems to me that they identified a problem and once they think it is fixed they will use returns on hand to run through to ensure the fix is good before opening for those who have not been accepted yet.

    That is a question that I can not answer, It could be stored as they fix the issue, I would assume that if they were going to be kicked back that would already be happening. I hope for all of you that it comes sooner than later because waiting is horrible :(
