Elizabeth is that 6 to 6 more weeks? did you get a letter? My tax prepareer states that the IRS says they mailed out letters with 1 to 2 weeks from 2/14 to all affected by this.

    Mine went to review and apparently a lot of people who filed with education credits are being review further, we should get a dd within 4-6 weeks. :(

    And REQUIRED at this time a lot MORE patience while waiting for the processing of your 1040 FIT return to be completed during the 2013 tax filing season RIGHT.
    Probably needs a little more review at this time in your life for this purpose.
    Normally, a student will receive a Form 1098-T from their institution by the end of January of the following year. This form will show information about tuition paid or billed along with other information. However, amounts shown on this form may differ from amounts taxpayers are eligible to claim for these tax benefits. Taxpayers should see the instructions to Forms 8863 and 8917 and Publication 970 for details on properly figuring allowable tax benefits.
    The credit targets the first four years of post-secondary education, and a student must be enrolled at least half time. This means that expenses paid for a student who, as of the beginning of the tax year, has already completed the first four years of college do not qualify. Any student with a felony drug conviction also does not qualify.
    The general comparison table in Publication 970 can be a useful guide to taxpayers in determining eligibility for these benefits. Details can also be found in the Tax Benefits for Education Information Center on IRS.gov.
    Where’s My Refund? Will not give you a refund date right away. We must first receive your tax return and then we have to process it and approve your refund. Where’s My Refund? will give you a personalized date once your refund is approved.
    Use this tool to check on the status of your refund. It provides the most up-to-date information the IRS has. There’s no need to call us unless Where’s My Refund? tells you to do so. Where’s My Refund? is updated every 24 hours – usually overnight — so you only need to check once a day
    *You don’t need to check “Where’s My Refund?” more than once a day as your information will not change.
    *To avoid system delays, the best time to check on refunds is evening and weekends.
    *There is no need to call the IRS about your refund; the telephone service has the same information that is available on “Where’s My Refund?”

    What is happening when Where’s My Refund? Shows the status of my refund is: Return Received?
    This means the IRS has your tax return and is processing it. Your personalized refund date will be available as soon as the IRS finishes processing your return and confirms that your refund has been approved. Most refunds are issued in less than 21 days.
