IRS says tax return software will cause delays

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

If you've already filed your federal income tax return electronically in hopes of getting your money back faster, the Internal Revenue Service is saying: not so fast.

The IRS says some taxpayers -- about 660,000 in all -- will see their refunds slowed by up to six weeks.

The reason: a problem with software used by some to file their returns.

The delay affects those who claimed education tax credits who filed returns between February 14 and February 22.

H&R Block says some of its customers were affected, but a spokeswoman for TurboTax says none of its customers were affected. The glitch was in a form that is used to claim education tax credits.

One one line of the form, if a taxpayer answers "no" to the question, the answer was left blank when the form was transmitted to the IRS.
