For early tax filers who anticipate a refund....The IRS has announced that e-file opens on the 30th & they've published the reason for delays.

The IRS announced that it will start processing 2012 tax returns for the majority of taxpayers on January 30, 2013. This opening date is a week later than previously announced, and affects both e-filed and paper-filed returns.
Congress was late in passing tax laws this year; as a result, the IRS is opening one week later than originally anticipated.
The new tax laws, called the American Tax Relief Act of 2012, were signed into law on January 2, 2013 by President Barack Obama, and extended some tax laws for 2012.
The new tax laws required that the IRS update its forms and instructions, as well as make critical processing system adjustments before it can be ready to process returns.
Remember – no matter which tax preparation software, tax preparation service, or tax preparer you choose, no returns will be processed by the IRS before January 30.
You can get started with your 2013 tax return online now with TURBOTAX or H&R BLOCK and remember that they will begin processing on the 30th, regardless of how you file and what service or software you use.
