The U.S. Internal Revenue Service won't accept some tax forms this year until the end of February and some as late as March. This change also will delay income tax refunds for many people.
Changes made on Jan. 2 by Congress in federal tax laws, including tax hikes on some taxpayers, caused most of the extended delay in accepting complicated tax returns.
Deby Fitzpatrick of B&N Accounting in Fulton said some residents and many businesses will be forced to delay filing this year because of the IRS changes. Less complicated returns are not affected by the IRS acceptance delays.
