U.S. 2014 tax-filing season delayed up to two weeks: IRS

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The start of the 2014 tax filing season will be delayed by one to two weeks early next year as a result of the government shutdown, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) said on Tuesday.

The original tax filing start was scheduled for January 21, but the IRS said in a statement that the start date has been pushed back to between January 28 and February 4.

The 16-day shutdown came during the peak period for preparing computer filing systems for 2014, the IRS said.

The delay marks the second year in a row that the IRS has been forced to start the filing season late. In January of this year, the 2013 tax season was delayed by the January 2 enactment of tax law changes made to resolve the so-called "fiscal cliff."
