>> of more fallout from the government shutdown just ended. the irs is delaying an upcoming tax filing season for one to two weeks because they're now behind themselves on computer programming and testing. of course, that could also mean late refunds for taxpayers who wanted to file early. the season for filing 2013 returns will start in late january or early february. the late start, however, does not change that basic overall april 15th deadline.
