Taxes Delayed for End of 2013? Really - Is This Good News or Bad?

Taxpayers eager to get refunds will have to wait an extra 10 days to file their federal tax returns.

The IRS said the government shutdown has forced it to delay tax filing season until January 31st. It had been slated to start January 21st.

The IRS says the 16-day shutdown in October interrupted workers who were programming and testing the agency’s processing systems. Following the shutdown, the IRS warned that tax season could be delayed.

Acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel said the extra 10 days should give workers time to prepare the system. Many taxpayers file early to get refunds. The April 15th deadline for filing individual tax returns remains unchanged.
