The law firm of Berger & Montague, P.C., located in Philadelphia PA, is currently investigating a possible class action suit against H&R Block Inc. in connection with H&R Blocks announcement of the
delay of refunds for tax returns that included a Form 8863, which allows a taxpayer to reclaim 100% of the first $2,000 in eligible student expenses and 25% of each dollar of eligible student expenses thereafter.
Previously the eligibility line of Form 8863 could be left blank and still indicate to the IRS that the taxpayer qualified for the student tax credit. Starting with the 2012 tax year, the IRS began to require that an n be entered in the eligibility line to indicate qualification. However, Form 8863 in H&R Blocks tax software continued to permit the line to be left blank, which has resulted in the delay of thousands of refunds.
