Impact of Changes in Tax Law on Taxpayers and the IRS. The continual enactment of significant tax law and extender provisions late in the year has led to IRS delays in handling millions of taxpayers returns and caused many taxpayers to underclaim benefits because they did not know what the law was, Olson wrote. Because of the magnitude of these challenges and the uncertainty about such a large number of important provisions, the 2013 filing season is already at risk. The 2013 filing season is likely to pose problems for many (if not most) taxpayers and the IRS if Congress does not address the many provisions that have already expired or soon will.
So, even the IRS can’t figure out what’s going on? They should just declare a state of mutiny and refuse to follow any more orders until Congress gets its act together;)
They cannot program the computers at IRS until all of these issues are decided one way or another.. It will be interesting to see how long this goes and how many dems will push for letting all of the “Bush Era” tax cuts expire.
In February, after some people’s tax withholding goes up as much as 50%, President Romney can call for the reinstitution of the Bush Era tax rates.
The IRS sucks and couldn’t do anything right even if their livelihood depended on it.
