The Internal Revenue Service announced today/Monday that it has finished updating its tax-processing systems allowing all remaining individual and business taxpayers to file their 2012 federal income tax returns. Over the weekend, they completed reprogramming and testing including all remaining updates required by the American Taxpayer Relief Act (ATRA) enacted by Congress in January. This final step clears the way for those claiming residential energy credits and various business tax credits and deductions to file their returns. There’s only six weeks to go before this year’s April 15 deadline! The best way to file an accurate return is to e-file with direct deposit—if you’re expecting a refund. IRS-dot-gov has tax-filing and tax-help resources available, as well as links to six-month tax-filing extensions if you need more time.
