The Internal Revenue Service won‘t begin processing tax returns for 2013 until January 31st this year. Liberty Tax Service Spokesperson Greg Carney says that‘s because of the government shutdown back in October.
Carney says filers can still have returns prepared and have them ready as the filing deadline remains April 15th. He adds that the standard deduction, amount of personal exemption and amount of earned income credit have all increased.
