SHREVEPORT, La. (KMSS) — Tax season was delayed for about two weeks due to the Internal Revenue Service updating new systems, but residents might have to wait just a little while longer if they plan to file with certain tax credits.
Back in January, lawmakers changed several tax credits which played a major part in the delays. In addition the I.R.S. is also working on updating new systems.
Even though tax returns are being accepted now, consumers should know that there still might be minor delays.
Jackie Rasco who manages Liberty Tax Service on Youree Drive in Shreveport said that she is encouraging customers to come in but wanted to caution them that if “they are going to claim the energy, education or depreciation credit that the I.R.S is not processing those types of returns till Mid February.”
