IRS needs more money to implement the new tax law

The IRS will be accepting both electronic and paper returns.

USA Today reported that last year's budget for the IRS budget was $11.2 billion, but that Congress still has not set funding levels for federal agencies, even though the current fiscal year began on October 1.

"Funding cuts have rendered the IRS unable to provide acceptable levels of taxpayer service", Olson wrote.

Scott Ready To Sign Off On Legalizing Possession, Cultivation Of Marijuana
Vermont could become the ninth state to legalize recreational cannabis soon, and the first to do so via the legislature. Phil Scott, a Republican, vetoed the legislation, but this time around the governor is expected to sign it into law.

Many software companies and tax professionals will be accepting tax returns before January 29 and then will submit the returns when IRS systems open. Even before the new tax law was passed, the agency expected to be able to answer about 60 percent of public calls during tax season and 40 percent for the full year. In addition to being the acting head of the IRS, Kautter is also the Treasury Department's assistant secretary for tax policy. It provides an exception for most (but not all) refinancings along with an exception for some loans closed after December 15, 2017 pursuant to binding purchase contracts. "Shortcuts" have become the norm, and "shortcuts" are incompatible with high-quality tax administration". Right now, the IRS typically doesn't know the date of a mortgage closing, the terms of a refinancing, or the date or terms of a purchase contract.

In the coming months, the agency will have to explain new statutes and changes in current law to businesses, individuals, and tax preparers.

Normally, April 15 is the final filing deadline, but it falls on a Sunday this year. It will need to develop clear guidance for taxpayers and develop forms and systems capacity to distinguish between loans subject to the $1,000,000 cap and loans subject to the $750,000 cap. Some issues have already arisen, such as taxpayers trying to prepay property taxes before December 31 so it would not be subject to a new $10,000 cap on the deduction.

CBSE Board exams to be conducted from March 5
There has not been any confirmation regarding the release of the final date sheet for both class 10th & 12th board exams 2018. The Central Board of Secondary Education ( CBSE ) will conduct its annual examinations of Classes X and XII from March 5.

The IRS is also being urged to release new tables as soon as possible that determine how much tax must be withheld from workers' paychecks, because until those are provided to employers and payroll companies, those who are due to receive tax cuts won't see an increase in their take-home pay.

For the income tax refund chart below, early filers with those credits should add two weeks to the processing time.
