Because of Congress waiting until January 2, 2013 to pass the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, the IRS has pushed back the date that they will accept tax returns.
Most basic individual income tax returns can be filed beginning on January 30, 2013. Some returns will not be able to be filed until February or even March depending on forms that need to be revised due to the law changes.
The IRS has not given a date that they will start accepting business returns yet. As soon as we have more information, we will post it.
Do not stop the accumulation of documents to be used in preparing your tax return because of these delays. We will still be able to start working on your return and have it ready when the IRS starts accepting tax returns this year.
