Our do-nothing Congress impedes tax software for 2013

From ATX. Last time Congress waited this long, people couldn’t file their taxes until February and sometimes March.

“We are already seeing the impact on our industry of not having a solution in place. Normally, all tax software providers receive approved versions of key tax forms in Q3 and Q4, giving us time to integrate the final forms into the tax software. It is now mid-December, and, as a result of the uncertainty in Washington, we do not have approved final form 1040-related schedules from the IRS or approved final versions of several key business forms. No one does.
