I am a student so my refund has been delayed.. I think.. I filed on the 17th and it still hasnt been approved even though my state has. I dont remember if one of the forms I used was one of the forms being delayed.. I know.. Im not bright.. but everyone says they recieved an email from turbotax or whoever they used to file stating this, but I havent.. Its like a 50 minute hold time to talk to any rep, so I was just curious if any of you are in the same situation and DID NOT recieve the email. 

Okay since maybe I was not clear... This is my question

STUDENTS that file the STUDENT DEDUCTION/CREDIT whatever..... DID YOU RECIEVE AN EMAIL FROM WHOEVER PREPARED YOUR TAXES STATING THAT YOUR REFUND WOULD BE DELAYED?!?!!?

I usually see the email receipt within a day or two stating accepted. Never had an issue.

I got the email... 

Your Tax Return Status: Returns SentImportant Information About Your Tax Return
A quick update on your federal tax return
Although you submitted your return earlier this month, you may have heard that the IRS is not ready to accept tax returns that have certain deductions or credits in them - like yours. 

Your return is currently being held because it contains these deductions and/or credits: Education Credits.

If your federal return is being held, your state return may also be delayed.  Some state tax authorities require that the federal return is accepted before they can start processing.

This is a nationwide delay for all returns like yours - no matter who prepares them. Don't worry, you won't lose your place in line. We've got your return ready to go as soon as the IRS is ready to process it. 

Next step: keep watching your email. 

We'll send you another message when there is an update on the status of your return.

Does anyone know if the people with STUDENT LOANS will have their refund delayed? Not like we have a lot to get back. DH and I both have student loans under our names.

IRS To Accept Returns Claiming Education Credits by Mid-February

IR-2013-10, Jan. 28, 2013

WASHINGTON — As preparations continue for the Jan. 30 opening of the 2013 filing season for most taxpayers, the Internal Revenue Service announced today that processing of tax returns claiming education credits will begin by the middle of February. 

Taxpayers using Form 8863, Education Credits, can begin filing their tax returns after the IRS updates its processing systems. Form 8863 is used to claim two higher education credits -- the American Opportunity Tax Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit.

The IRS emphasized that the delayed start will have no impact on taxpayers claiming other education-related tax benefits, such as the tuition and fees deduction and the student loan interest deduction. People otherwise able to file and claiming these benefits can start filing Jan. 30.

As it does every year, the IRS reviews and tests its systems in advance of the opening of the tax season to protect taxpayers from processing errors and refund delays. The IRS discovered during testing that programming modifications are needed to accurately process Form 8863.  Filers who are otherwise able to file but use the Form 8863 will be able to file by mid-February. No action needs to be taken by the taxpayer or their tax professional.  Typically through the mid-February period, about 3 million tax returns include Form 8863, less than a quarter of those filed during the year.

The IRS remains on track to open the tax season on Jan. 30 for most taxpayers. The Jan. 30 opening includes people claiming the student loan interest deduction on the Form 1040 series or the higher education tuition or fees on Form 8917, Tuition and Fees Deduction. Forms that will be able to be filed later are listed on IRS.gov."
