30,000 Ohioans could see delay in tax returns

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

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/X8ynRz) 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 said the problem involves other tax preparers beyond H&R Block.

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