I've heard several people in here say that their refund is being delayed until the end of February because of something having to do with school. I started attending school this year (well, 2012) and I got a 1098-T from my school. Does this mean that they won't process my refund until the end of February? The IRS website doesn't say anything other than it is being processed and "a refund date will be provided when available". Before it was saying that it had been accepted (but not that it was being processed) and that I should get a refund within 21 days.
