About 30K Ohioans could see delay in tax returns

Report: delay for tax returns may last up to 6 weeks

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — A tax-preparation glitch could delay the returns of an estimated 30,000 Ohioans by up to six weeks.

The Plain Dealer reported the estimated number of affected Ohioans on Thursday. The Internal Revenue Service said Wednesday that the glitch will affect about 660,000 tax returns nationwide

The IRS said that a problem with a limited number of software company products affected some taxpayers filing a form used to claim educational credits between Feb. 14 and Feb. 22.

The agency didn't name any companies in the statement. But Kansas City-based H&R Block has been informing customers about problems.

H&R Block spokesman Gene King says the problem involves other tax preparers beyond H&R Block.

He says the returns were prepared accurately, but the error occurred in e-file processing.
