When Can I File My 2012 Tax Return?

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


By Susan Koomar

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 Monday, April 15

The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on January 30, 2013. Most taxpayers should be able to file on that date though 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.

How does the fiscal cliff have anything to do with the 2012 taxes? I am one of the poor people in this country but I have to say even though I love to do my taxes early so I can get back that much needed money, I am not going to blame going over the fiscal cliff on this.
