It’s that time again.
Time to get to those W2s and tax forms. The Internal Revenue Service 2013 tax season began Jan. 30 for 1040 tax filers.
“Most Arizonans, most Yavapai and Coconino county residents, can start submitting their tax returns electronically or on paper. Some will not, because of the Jan. 2 American Tax Payer Relief Act,” IRS Spokesman Bill Brunson said. “If a person needs to claim residential energy credits, or use the general business form 3800, claim depreciation or amortization; if they have anything to do with those items then they are going to be delayed for those returns until late February and into March. Historically speaking, the individuals that have those items don’t file early. They file later with an extension.”
The IRS has also started a Tumblr blog where information on taxes can be found. The blog is an effort to reach younger tax payers who use social media and other websites frequently.
