So, I have an esoteric question.  Any political junky out there know what legislative change occurred that will effect Form 8863 (Education Credit)?

The answer is Hurricane Katrina and the "Gulf Opportunity Zone".

I found that out when I tried to file taxes this week. "We're sorry, that form is not avaliable due to the Katrina GO Zone, please try back after February 1st."

Gotcha.  I like the visceral comfort of doing taxes on paper.

Amen.  Someone said on another thread that tax guys have to come from somewhere, and I guess one of the places is Pa.  I think I'm a bit of an anomaly up here - bringing my tax regs and IRS News Bulletins with me to class.

I can't help it dammit.  :P
