H&R Block error may delay 600,000 tax returns

A simple omission is leading to a refund delay for up to 600,000 tax returns.

Returns filed by H&R Block may be delayed for an error on the student tax credit form 8863.

In previous years, preparers could leave a field blank to indicate "no." This year, they have to enter the letter "N." it seems H&R Block wasn't doing that.

Those forms will be delayed 6-8 weeks.
