IRS announces late processing date

If you’re eager for your 2013 federal tax refund from the IRS you may have to wait a little longer for your check. 

The IRS said Wednesday that it would not start processing 2013 tax returns until Jan. 31 next year, 10 days later than originally scheduled. 

While this date is much later than the season has started historically, the IRS signaled in October that processing would be delayed because it was not able to complete systems updates during the government shutdown.

“We know, for many taxpayers, there will be no reason to wait to prepare their returns — those who e-file earliest will be first in line once e-filing opens,” said H&R Block spokesperson James Robertson.

Just because the season may start later doesn’t mean it finishes later. April 15 is still the filing deadline.
