IRS Delays Tax Season until End of January

The Internal Revenue Service said Tuesday that it plans to open the 2013 tax filing season and begin processing individual income tax returns on Jan. 30, more than a week after the initially planned start date of Jan. 22, but some returns cannot be processed until late February or March.

The reason is the late passage of the fiscal cliff legislation, the American Taxpayer Relief Act, by Congress on New Year’s Day. The IRS said it would begin accepting individual tax returns on Jan. 30 after updating its forms and completing the programming and testing of its processing systems. This will reflect the bulk of the late tax law changes enacted Jan. 2. The announcement means that the vast majority of tax filers—more than 120 million households—should be able to start filing tax returns starting Jan 30.

The IRS estimates that remaining households will be able to start filing in late February or into March because of the need for more extensive form and processing systems changes. This group includes people claiming residential energy credits, depreciation of property or general business credits. Most of those in this group file more complex tax returns and typically file closer to the April 15 deadline or obtain an extension. The IRS has already begun processing some business tax returns
