1 Min Read

WASHINGTON, Jan 8 (Reuters) - The U.S. Internal Revenue Service said on Tuesday it will begin accepting 2012 tax filings on Jan. 30, eight days later than originally planned due to last-minute changes to tax law made in Congress' legislation to avoid the 'fiscal cliff'.

"This date ensures we have the time we need to update and test our processing systems," said IRS Acting Commissioner Steven Miller in a statement.
