Due to the last minute changes made by Congress under the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, the IRS has announced that the filing season is delayed until January 30, 2013 for most taxpayers, and late February or early March for other taxpayers. The IRS will not process any returns prior to January 30. About 120 million out of the 150 million total returns expected to be filed are delayed until January 30.

About 30 million taxpayers will not be able to file their returns until late February or early March because of the need for more extensive form and processing systems changes. Forms affected by this delay include Form 4562, Depreciation and Amortization, Form 3800, General Business Credit, and Form 8582, Passive Activity Loss Limitations.
