what can i expect on my tax return

When can I expect my 2012 tax return?

I am aware that there was a problem with those people whom claimed the educational tax credit. I am also aware that H&R Block (who I filed with) had a glitch which delayed my return. However, I filed my returns (electronically) on January 29th, 2013 and here I am on May 1st, 2013 without my refund. The IRS website states that they have received my return and it is being processed. This has been saying this for the past 3 months. Everybody else I've talked to has already received their returns, and tell me that I should have received mine.

My next step was to contact the IRS. So I called them up by phone, was connected to an automated service which asked me a few questions. but gave me NO option to speak with anybody. The only thing this automated service would do is tell me the EXACT same information that I can view on the IRS 'Where's my Refund?' website. I even tried pressing '0' several times to; by chance, be connected with an operator. Instead, their automated service just ignored that and continued to tell me the information on their website.

At this point, I tried contacting H&R Block about the issue. All they could tell me is that the return was accepted by the IRS and so it is their responsibility now.

So, after 3 months of waiting. my question is: When can I expect my tax return? Is there anything I can do about this, or should I just sit and wait for our lousy government to grow some balls and admit how much they suck? Hell, is there even a REAL number I can call to find out what's going on?

Note: I have yet to hear from ANYBODY who's return even took more than 2 weeks, let alone 3 months and counting.

Without the rest of the information it's not possible to offer a concrete answer, however since you are under 24 and at least one of your parents is alive, you are not eligible for the refundable portion of the AOC unless you provided more than half of your total support from your EARNED income in 2012. That holds true even if you cannot be claimed as a dependent by your parents.

While certain non-income sources, such as student loans, are considered in determining if you provided more than half of your support for dependency purposes, the rules for the AOC are stricter and require that you provide more than half of your total support from earned income from employment or self-employment.

Given your age it's possible that the IRS is waiting to see your parents' tax return before they consider any AOC claim on yours. Many -- probably most -- students are not eligible for the refundable portion of the AOC yet claimed it in prior years. The IRS is recovering those payments and is watching current claims much more closely.
