Dude, where’s my refund? IRS overwhelmed by requests leaving many filers frustrated

But don’t worry your pretty little heads about the Internal Revenue Services’s involvement in implementing the Obamacare mandate. It’ll go swimmingly.

The tax filing season was delayed this year as the IRS, tax preparers and software companies struggled to catch up with fiscal cliff-related tax code changes.

The IRS didn’t begin accepting individual taxpayer returns until Jan. 30, and now the agency is reportedly way behind on issuing refunds. That’s not working out so well for retailers like Walmart.

The IRS is so swamped by requests, the call center is unable to keep up with the demand.

Great idea! Point frustrated taxpayers to the IRS website!

Many tax filers, already frustrated by higher payroll taxes and insurance premiums, are left wondering when they’ll finally see those refunds they’re expecting.

We’re sure the White House will get right on that.
