Many Early Tax Filers Still Waiting for Refunds

Taxpayers claiming education credits on Form 8863 encountered their first delay when the IRS said it wouldn’t be able to start processing the forms until mid-February because it needed to update its systems. Then, on March 12, the IRS said several tax software providers erroneously filed more than 600,000 returns containing the 8863 form –resulting in delays of up to six weeks from the date they were filed.

That meant most of these filers were expecting refunds by the end of March or beginning of April at the latest.

But since then, hundreds of angry comments have been posted on Facebook and other online tax forums from filers who claim they still haven’t received their refunds.
