How long will it take to get my refund since I have education expenses on my return?
Asked by: bellmont
I just went to go file on turbotax and I get all the way to the end and it says the IRS is not accepting returns with education credits on them. If I file today with it on there, I won’t get my refund til March. I can’t wait until then.
Should I go ahead and file with this credit on there? Or should I take it off and wait til they are accepting them and then amend my taxes and get that extra $ 1000 I was going to get?
Every year I file, I get my taxes in 1 week or less, and I can’t wait a month.
Any suggestions or know anyone who filed and is getting their return sooner than March?
Ok, now I looked it up on the IRS.gov website and it said that if you had education expenses, you were free to file on the 30th of January. I am so confused. Maybe turbotax isn’t updated or something. It specifically said on the IRS website that if you have education expenses, you can file on January 30th. Anyone else know FOR SURE if this is what the deal is?
