Tax Forms and Information
The United States government did not fall off the first ledge of the fiscal cliff, but the IRS is scrambling to play catchup with the tax forms. According to the IRS, “the production of some 2012 major tax products, including the Form 1040 and the Instructions for Form 1040, is impacted by the recent passage of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.
Update: The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on January 30, 2013, for taxpayers filing Form 1040. For a list of forms delayed until February or March, consult the list at the IRS website.
