WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - The IRS is now accepting E-filed tax returns.
The process started a week later this year due to last minute changes in the tax code in the dispute over the Fiscal Cliff, according to H&R Block tax professional Jamie Koeppel. "That's 8 days later than usual."
Koeppel says there's a number of files you'll need and questions you'll be answering when you file your taxes. "You'll want the social security number of all the people on that tax return, that includes dependants. You'll also need to bring all the documents related to this year's return."
IRS Spokesman Christopher Miller says that several groups of people will need to wait to file their taxes. "Those that are filing for depreciation or education credits should wait until the middle of February." Those particular filings are still being held up by the late date.
Miller also says that there's plenty of free e-filing options available for most americans. "If you go to our website, you'll see the Free File option. Click it and you'll have plenty of ways to file your taxes for free."
