IRS filing season will begin on Jan. 30
Following the January tax law changes made by Congress under the American Taxpayer Relief Act, the Internal Revenue Service plans to open the 2013 filing season and begin processing individual income tax returns on Jan, 30. The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on that date after updating forms and completing 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.
