IRS Announces Tax Filing Opens January 30, 2013
The IRS has announced a shift in date in tax filings and will not be processing any tax paper return till the 30th of January. Tax payers can ensure that there are no further delays in their tax refunds by filing taxes online using Turbotax.
The delay in the finalization of the fiscal cliff budget caused the IRS to reprogram its systems and make changes in forms to reflect the updates. The time needed in updating forms, completing programs and testing the processing systems compelled the tax collection agency to push forward the date. The agency also announced that more than 120 million households should be able to file their tax returns on the 30th http://www.easyincometaxfilingonline.com/
The IRS acting Commissioner Steven T. Miller said "We have worked hard to open tax season as soon as possible, this date ensures we have the time we need to update and test our processing systems."
The IRS will be open to accept and process tax returns from people affected by the late Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) including people claiming higher education tuition and fees deduction, state and local sales tax deduction and educator expenses deduction irrespective of whether they are filed on paper or electronically by the end of the month. While there will be no advantage for people who file their tax return on paper early, tax refunds will be quicker for people that file taxes online.
"The best option for taxpayers is to file electronically,"
