If you're looking to get a jump on filing your federal tax returns in the new year, you'll have to wait an extra 10 days.
The Internal Revenue Service says that the 16-day government shutdown in October pushed back the start of tax-filing season to January 31.
Officials say the shutdown interrupted workers who were busy programming and testing the IRS' processing system and need time to catch up.
Many taxpayers file early to get quick refunds.
The April 15 deadline for filing individual returns stays the same.
