IRS Will Start Accepting Some Business and Nonprofit Tax Returns Monday

The Internal Revenue Service plans to begin accepting corporate, partnership and tax-exempt returns starting at 9:00 am Eastern Time on Monday, but with some important exceptions.
In an email to tax professionals on Friday, the IRS said that effective 9:00 am Eastern Time on Monday, February 4, it will begin accepting many of the tax year 2012 calendar and fiscal-year Corporate (Form 1120 series), Partnership (Forms 1065/1065-B), and Tax Exempt Organization (Form 990 series) income tax returns with the exception of filers claiming depreciation deductions and various energy and business tax credits. The IRS said it plans to accept the remaining tax returns in late February or early March.
“In general, this means any business attaching Form 3800 (General Business Credits), Form 4562 (Depreciation and Amortization) or any of the other forms listed below, should wait to file their 2012 tax return at the later date,” said the IRS. “A specific date will be announced in the near future.”
