Tax Season Delayed At Least A Week



Bookmark and Share

Ninety percent of the Internal Revenue Service was closed during the government shutdown. Sources say the IRS is behind schedule nearly three weeks because of it.

The IRS came out with a statement saying they are delaying the start of the tax filing season for one to two weeks because of the shutdown. The original scheduled date was on January 21. As of right now, the season could start at the end of January or even in February.

Timothy Ness with Ness Tax and Book Keeping Service says people can still file and prepare as normal. But the IRS just won't be able to accept them until the changed date arrives. Ness recommends since you have a little extra time, make sure to collect your W-2's for the year. But to still treat this tax season like a normal one.

"We may not be able to transmit the return the right away but it's still going to be faster than doing it yourself and having a paper file return," said Timothy Ness with Ness Tax & Bookkeeping Service.

Ness says despite the wait, his staff is still saying busy in the office.

Ness says the filling delay could be even longer than the expected date, especially if congress can't come to a budget agreement in January.

This past tax season was also delayed thanks to a congressional disagreement.
