H&R BLOCK SCREWS OVER EVERY 8863 STUDENT IN THE U.S. / WON'T GIVE OUT TAX REFUNDS OR ANSWERS

H&R Block Inc. customers claiming education tax credits got a surprise this week when the IRS told them that that their return had been submitted incorrectly, possibly delaying their refund by six to eight weeks, customers say.

H&R Block posted an item about the issue on its Facebook page on Thursday. By Friday afternoon, the post had attracted more than 1,100 comments from angry, confused or concerned customers, many of whom had received letters from the Internal Revenue Service indicating a problem.

“I've got friends who filed through TurboTax, and they're getting their money,” said Brendan Williams, a graduate student in Oregon. Williams said he was relying on his $3,000 refund to pay rent and utility bills, which are now overdue. He might not see any more money until April 1, when a student loan check is scheduled to arrive.

The company did not immediately respond late Friday to requests for comment. It updated its Facebook page late today, saying "we are assured (the refund_ will not take that long."

"We have worked with the IRS to expedite a solution to this issue for all of our affected clients," the company's Facebook post said.

The problem appears to revolve around returns filed before Feb. 22 with Form 8863, which is used to claim the American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning tax credits.

The form asks whether the college student had been convicted for a felony drug charge. H&R Block apparently left the "No" answer blank when the IRS expected it to be checked, customers say.

James Bisard of Gresham said he received a letter from the IRS saying his Form 8863, used to claim education credits, was incomplete.

"I got my state refund three weeks ago," Bisard said, according to a transcript he provided of an online chat with H&R Block customer service representative. The rep offered him a refund, but also claimed the company was not responsible for the mistake, according to the transcript Bisard provided.

Williams filed H&R Block's online program in February. He discovered today that the IRS had flagged his return.

H&R Block told investors yesterday that its third-quarter loss widened because of delays Congress caused in the tax season.

H&R Block is a joke.

They take the average person off the street, put them thru a 6 week crash course on how to do taxes & then put them behind a desk.

I did a home correspondance course for 2 years, went thru extensive testing before I got my license to do taxes.

I've been out of the business since 2004 but I am seriously thinking about reopening my tax business because the 2 main tax businesses in this town are really ripping people off when it comes to doing their taxes.

If my college education didn't rely on it, I wouldn't be complaining or giving a shit. It's not only the money, it's the return itself. My college needs to have a copy from the IRS. Because the two are intertwined, I'm freaking out. If they weren't, I'd sit back and think, eventually it will arrive. I'm not just simply relying on money that was supposed to arrive, I'm waiting to see if I can even continue school at this point. I may have to start repaying student loans that I can't afford without a degree. Do some research before you try to give me advice next time.

Re: H&R BLOCK SCREWS OVER EVERY 8863 STUDENT IN THE U.S. / WON'T GIVE OUT TAX REFUNDS OR ANSWERS
This college kid filled out everything correctly. Just used H&R to submit to the IRS. H&R altered my forms, then sent them in. I have hard copies of mine proving they were filled out correctly. Taxes are easy as pie to fill out. Everything is so dumbed down that it makes it easy as hell to do. The problem lies with H&R Block. When they decided to guarantee my filing to be error free with the max refund and went through it to ensure that it was all good, their system decided to delete several answers and then submit them. I just heard one guy say that they even changed his answer without his knowledge, marking him as a felon. Which would make him ineligible to receive American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits. Which for some, is a few grand in the pocket.

Take your anger out on the Federal Government. Obama and his minions are the ones who took the student loans from the banks and shifted them over to the government and the IRS.

Get a refund? Too bad if you default on your student loan.

Quit blaming H & R block. Put the blame where blame is due: their burdening tax laws and tax codes.
