Tax Filings Delayed for Many Floridians

As with every tax season, this year's tax season comes with both its good and bad. While the tax deadline was extended to April 18, 2011, some taxpayers must wait until mid to late February to file their taxes.

On December 23, 2010 the IRS warned that because of the late enactment of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 (PL 111-312), which extended various expired provisions, it would need time to reprogram its systems and update Schedule A. As a result, taxpayers who itemize deductions on Schedule A and those taxpayers who take certain extended deductions would not be able to file their returns at the start of tax season. Those taxpayers who need to wait are:

1) Taxpayers Claiming Itemized Deductions on Scheduled A.
2) Taxpayers Claiming the Higher Education Tuition and Fees Deduction; and
3) Taxpayers Claiming the Educator Expense Deduction.

Additionally, the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act also extended those deductions for 2011 along with a number of other tax deductions and credits for 2011 and 2012.

Except for those asked to wait to file, the IRS will begin accepting e-file and Free File returns on January 14, 2011.
