When?


The State forms and instruction booklet have been available for two weeks.


With no major tax legislation for CY 2017, what's the holdup? Any IRS folks here?


In pre-Internet days, I recall receiving instruction booklets with forms via USPS as early as Christmas Eve.

They haven't mailed them out in about 7 years, and I don't think they are available online until mid-January.

The only form we'll need before April is the extension.

Surely you are joking.

Expecting one of our government agencies, partially defunded of late, to be meeting your personal deadline(?)

The IRS delayed updating the forms for 2017 because they didn't know if Congress was going to change anything in the 2017 tax code, during the passage of the tax reform legislation. The IRS is now working on updating the forms. The IRS will begin accepting E-filed returns on 01/29/2018. They will start processing the returns shortly after. The forms should be available starting 01/22/2018.

The problem is the history of edits and changes that prove to be needed after a big change.
I wouldn't be in a big hurry to file this year.

The 1099s are not yet mailed out, so why the rush for the forms? Tax software is much simpler.

Some folks want to get a head start using Dec. statements, others get 1099s, etc on-line.
