IRS delays tax filing season

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

The Internal Revenue Service announced it will delay the start of the tax filing season by up to two weeks.

The IRS said the move is necessary to allow, "…adequate time to program and test tax processing systems..," following the 16 day federal government closure. 

The original 2014 filing season was scheduled to begin January 21. A new filing start date will be announced in December.

Tax payers can still send in a paper tax return any time, but the IRS will not process it until the season officially starts.
