On March 11, 2013, H&R Block has made a public statement on IRS Form 8863 issue. H&R Block has confirmed with the IRS that there was an issue with a limited number of software company products that affected some tax returns filed between Feb. 14 and 22, 2013. These affected returns included certain education tax credits claimed on Form 8863, which has affected and delayed tax returns. H&R Block states they regret this inconvenience and has worked with IRS to expedite a solution to this issue for affected clients.
The IRS has informed H&R Block and other impacted providers that they are currently processing these returns and should be able to more accurately provide refund timelines via its “Where’s My Refund?” website. It may take up to 4-6 weeks to process your return. However, some H&R Block clients are already reporting a change in their refund status since the IRS began processing these returns.
