2013 Tax Season Opens January 30th for 1040 Filers

The Internal Revenue Service will begin to accept and process 1040 applications on January 30th because of the recent tax law changes enacted by Congress in early January. However, there are several forms that require more extensive programming and testing because of the late legislation. At this time these forms are expected to be accepted in late February or March.
