If you are used to filing your taxes early , you’ll have to wait a little longer this year. The Internal Revenue Service has revised its opening date for tax season, pushing it eight days to January 30, 2013. While the tax filing deadline is Monday, April 15. The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on January 30, 2013. Most taxpayers should be able to file on that date though some revised forms may not be immediately available.
According to West Chester Patch, “You can blame the delay on the federal “fiscal cliff” crisis and the new tax bill Congress passed just after Dec. 31. You can find more information in this Forbes article. Electronic filing season was originally set to start on Jan. 22 this year. As a result of the delay, nobody will get a refund in January.” For more information check out this great article over at WestChesterPatch.com.
