Long story short:
Went in and did my taxes yesterday, she added the "American opportunity tax credit" due to I was in school this year. with the credit being added, it increased my return by a couple hundred dollars.
She filed it electronically.
she called me today saying that she did research into the credit and said that I cant use it, due to the fact that im past my 4 years in college. and that I have to come back in so that they can do an amendment..
She said that im still gonna get my return for the amount with the credit, but amendments wont be looked at by the IRS until April?
so it looks like I might have to pay some money back from my return to the IRS once they see the amendment.
im not a tax expert, but does this sound right?
