WASHINGTON — The start of the 2014 tax filing season will be delayed by one to two weeks early next year as a result of the government shutdown, the Internal Revenue Service said on Tuesday.
The 16-day shutdown came during the peak period for preparing computer filing systems for 2014, the IRS said.
The delay marks the second year in a row that the IRS has been forced to start the filing season late. In January, the 2013 tax season was delayed by the Jan. 2 enactment of tax law changes made to resolve the so-called “fiscal cliff.”
Apple Inc. will give away operating and work software free to Mac computer users, challenging Microsoft Corp.’s near-stranglehold on personal computing as the latter starts to make inroads into the mobile market.
By giving away its Mac operating system, Apple is taking on Microsoft’s predominant Windows platform, installed on an estimated eight to nine out of 10 of the world’s computers and one of its most profitable cash cows.
