IRS delays opening of tax filing season to Jan. 31

The Internal Revenue Service will delay the start of the 2014 tax filing season until Jan. 31 because it needs time to program and test its tax processing systems. The agency said the 16-day partial federal government shutdown in October over the budget meant it could not meet its original deadline to start processing returns on Jan. 21, 2014.
