This afternoon, the IRS announced plans for a February 14, 2011 start date to process tax returns that were delayed as a result of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010. The IRS will begin the processing of both paper and e-filed returns that contain itemized deductions on Schedule A, tuition and fees deduction on Form 8917, and the educator expenses deduction.

I am telling my clients that Congress waited until the 11th hour to pass tax laws and programming just can't happen that quickly so the filing will be delayed. Meanwhile, I am doing the returns and sending them to LaCerte to file whenever they can.

We just tell them like it is: “Due to a late tax law changes the IRS is not ready to accept certain returns before second part of February. Your return will be e-filed as soon as the IRS is ready to process them.”

So you did not answer the question. How are you handling clients?

We have received this notice from our software company: “The IRS asks that you do not file these returns until the prescribed start date (yet to be determined). Stockpiling rules do not apply to these returns.”
