Rochester, N.Y. - This is the beginning of tax season, and it's shaping up to be one that tax preparers have never experienced before.
Fiscal Cliff talks led the IRS to postpone updating its forms, which is now creating a ripple effect for accountants.
Whitney Banewicz is a local CPA who is still waiting for federal and state tax forms so she can complete clients' returns.
Banewicz says the delays will inevitably impact the amount of time it takes to receive tax refunds.
Some forms may not be available until March, but many will be ready by the end of January.
