When Can I File My 2012 Tax Return?

The IRS has announced a delayed start to the 2012 tax filing season.

You'll have to wait a bit if you are used to filing your annual tax return at the earliest possible date.

The Internal Revenue Service has revised its opening date for tax season -- pushing it eight days to January 30, 2013.

The tax filing deadline is still Monday, April 15.

The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on Jan. 30, 2013. Most taxpayers should be able to file on that date although some revised forms may not be immediately available.

You can blame the delay on the federal "fiscal cliff" crisis and the new tax bill Congress passed just after Dec. 31. You can find more information in this Forbes article.

Electronic filing season was originally set to start on Jan. 22 this year.

As a result of the delay, nobody will get a refund in January, an H&R Block official told Financial Advisor.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe the filing deadline should be extended? Are you annoyed that your refund will be delayed?
