Although the IRS began receiving electronically filed returns starting on Friday, January 14, 2011 many returns with specific forms have been delayed because of the last minute tax law changes passed in December of 2010.  We received notice from the IRS yesterday that they will begin accepting returns that include schedule A, tuition and fee deductions, and educator expenses on 2/14/11.  The IRS has continued to publicize that returns electronically filed on that date will receive priority and be processed more quickly than any paper returns sent in prior to that date.
