Illinois delays start of income tax filing season
SPRINGFIELD — Illinois revenue officials say residents won't be able to file their 2013 income taxes until the end of January — a two-week delay.
The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reported the delay follows a similar federal postponement. Refunds and the April 15 filing deadline aren't affected.
The Internal Revenue Service is delaying the start of the tax-filing season because of last year's government shutdown that furloughed workers who were programming and testing tax-processing systems.
Now, state and federal returns can be filed starting Jan. 31.
Sue Hofer is a spokeswoman for the Illinois Department of Revenue.
She says the two-week delay isn't expected to cause problems in Illinois because "very few people file in January anyway."
Employers have until Jan. 31 to give employees W-2 forms.
