IRS release - Filing season for individuals opens January 31, 2014 

December 18:  The IRS today announced the filing season for individual taxpayers to file their income tax returns for 2013 will open January 31, 2014.

According to the IRS release—IR-2013-100—the opening date is delayed in order to allow the IRS adequate time to program and test its tax processing systems. The annual process for updating IRS systems “saw significant delays” in October following the 16-day federal government closure.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) today released its review of the IRS’s 2013 tax filing season. The GAO report—2013 Tax Filing Season: IRS Needs to Do More to Address Growing Imbalance between the Demand for Services and Resources (GAO-14-133, December 18, 2013)—is available on the GAO website.
