Accepted on 1/25
Finally able to Order Transcripts Yesterday 2/21
Your tax refund is scheduled to be sent to your bank on February 26, 2013.
If your refund is not credited to your account by March 3, 2013, check with your bank to see if it has been received.
Note: Call 800-829-1040 Press 0 until you get someone on the phone. DO NOT ask them any questions about your return ask them to transfer you to the Account Management Department. I was real nice to them let them know that I know they are bombarded with calls right now and I appreciate their help in advance. I told them that I checked for my return last week and I was able to see the info and I checked again this week and that nothing was available. I asked politely if he can just confirm that there isn't anything else that I need to submit to the IRS from my side.
I received an email from turbo tax stating that my refund was going to be insufficient to pay the $19.99 filing fee owed to turbo tax for doing my return. THIS IS NOT THE CASE!! This email is poorly worded, (to say the least), and a lot of people are receiving it b/c their returns are being delayed. Especially for those of us who filed form 8863. Turbo tax acknowledges the email, i've provided the link below, and you can also look at the Turbotax community blogs about this. Good luck all !!

To All Tax Filers! http://www.accountingtoday.com/news/No-More-Holds-on-EITC-Returns-Says-IRS-65830-1.html?taxpro
According to the IRS and article above dated Feb 25 we all shall start seeing updates within a few days!!!! Everyone that has filed EITC and/or 8863 ALL returns were on hold until 2/25 ! All EITC holds have now been lifted! EVERYONE that filed these forms were in the errors department. Any letters that were genrated were sent automatically when the IRS system detects an error. Due to these circumstances we have only been processing for 3 days!!!
TECHNICALLY we did not start processing until Feb 25 which should finally start giving everyone DDD’s within a few days!!!
According to the IRS 8863 returns were began processing FEB 14, however According to this article http://www.accountingtoday.com/news/IRS-Warns-Problems-Education-Credit-Filings-65757-1.html dated feb 20th 8863 due to problems EDUCATION forms STILL were not updated as of the 20th!! ANY returns containing the EITC in addition to 8863 were held until the 25th!! I understand MANY filers received dd w/8863 ONLY, within the last week! This due to the fact they did not have EITC. According to the IRS dated Feb 8th ALL EITC returns were being held due to FRAUD! Again these holds have been now LIFTED!
Here is a Timline to explain:
1/22 — IRS delays filing until 1/30
1/30– Tax Filing officially begins
1/31– IRS delays 8863 Education Credits will be processed 2/14
2/8 — IRS states most EITC will be held due to Fraud
2/14– IRS begins processing 8863 Education
2/20– IRS says 8863 still being delayed due to errors
2/20- ?– 8863 forms fixed
2/25 — IRS states ALL EITC Holds have been lifted
2/26–present — ALL EITC returns begin normal proccessing
I also got not tax bar

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:
- Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
- Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
- Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
- Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
- Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
