We got the 2008 homebuyer credit, which was $7,500 that they expected people to start paying back in $500 installments beginning this year.
Tax legislation changed it so people only have to pay back half. Because of this, we couldn't file until Feb 14, which we did (electronically with direct deposit), and they processed our return on Feb 16. Told us to expect our return between February 24 and March 5. It never came, we called. They said "We have 3 weeks to get your return to you. If you don't get it by the 9th, call back." So naturally, we did not, and I did call back. "We're having some problems with our system for paying back the homebuyer credit. You won't get your return until March 25th or later, but I don't see why you would not get it on March 25th."
Soo....no money, naturally. Now they say April 5th, maybe the next week, maybe not until the end of April. Seriously? How hard is it to fix some damn programming? What do they have, the most incompetent people in the world running their systems? Wouldn't it just be so much easier to say "screw it", send us the full amount, and let us send them a damn check for $250??? I feel like they are just going to keep delaying and keep delaying forever, and we need that money.
Is anyone else having the same problem???
