Today we will discuss the Internal Revenue Service’s schedule for processing 2013 individual tax returns.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced a delay of approximately one to two weeks to start the 2014 filing season to allow adequate time to program and test tax processing systems following the 16-day federal government closure.
The IRS said that it is exploring options to shorten the expected delay and will announce a final decision on the start of the 2014 filing season in December. The original start date of the 2014 filing season was January 21, and with a one- to two-week delay, the IRS would start accepting and processing 2013 individual tax returns no earlier than January 28 and no later than February 4.
