Good news for filers who've been in tax refund limbo because of their repayment of the 2008 faux first-time homebuyer credit.
The IRS says it has beefed up its staff to manually input the problematic returns that confused its computer system. Once those folks enter the 1040s into the system, any associated refunds should be issued by April 5.
A few stragglers might not get out until the following week. But the IRS swears it's on track to get this glitch out of the way and the refund checks on their way to filers, many of whom have been waiting for the tax cash since February.
The IRS also says it is updating its computer system to deal with the homebuyer credit repayment issue so that any future filings of this nature can be dealt with by machines, not real people.
