CEDAR RAPIDS, IA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- Although the IRS will start processing tax returns about eight days later than usual this year, taxpayers can still prepare and e-file now with TaxACT®. TaxACT will submit all early e-filed returns as soon as the IRS begins accepting them without further action from the taxpayer.
The IRS has already released most forms early filers tend to need. "The overwhelming majority of taxpayers can prepare and e-file returns today, regardless of IRS delays," said TaxACT President JoAnn Kintzel. "Get it done now and be first in line when the IRS begins accepting returns from TaxACT and other providers on January 30."
If a return includes a form not yet available, TaxACT's notification process automatically alerts the customer when it is ready, allowing them to finish the return and e-file immediately.
The IRS processes returns and refunds on a first come, first served basis. Based on IRS-issued refund guidelines, a taxpayer who e-files on January 30 could have their refund direct deposited in early February.
Fast, affordable refund options
TaxACT offers additional convenient refund options:
After e-filing, TaxACT customers can check the status of e-filed returns and federal refunds 24/7 on a computer, mobile phone, or with TaxACT Central, a free companion app for Android and Apple devices. TaxACT also offers email and text message notifications.
