Tax Season Is Here, But IRS Isn’t Yet ‘Back to Normal’ (Podcast)

Feb. 4, 2022, 9:45 AM

The tax filing season that just kicked off is the third that is being affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Kelly Phillips Erb, Bloomberg Tax editor and host of the Tax Girl podcast, says we haven’t yet returned to the way things worked pre-pandemic.

Listen here and subscribe to Talking Tax on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Megaphone, or Audible.

In addition to a paper return backlog and understaffed IRS, this year’s returns will also be complicated by stimulus checks and advance child tax credit payments. Erb joins our weekly podcast, Talking Tax, to talk about what filers and tax pros can expect in the coming weeks and about why, this year, it may not necessarily be a good idea to file early.
