The IRS announced on Monday March 4, 2013 that all 2012 individual and business tax returns can now be filed. They have successfully tested the outstanding forms that needed to be updated.
So, the eventful and delayed 2013 tax season is now fully up and running.
As far as most Corporation and S-Corporation returns are concerned, the filing deadline is only a few days away on March 15, 2013. For any clients that do not yet have the information available to complete their returns, I will be filing an automatic 6 month extension. The filing deadline will then be September 15, 2013.
However, note that any tax due, still needs to be paid by March 15, 2013 otherwise penalties and interest will be charged.
