Has there been something going on with the IRS and taxes this year? It’s been almost two weeks and still no refund :(

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.

IRS stinks. 3 hours and 4 different departments. Still on hold waiting for next department.

Trying to get on the phone with the IRS is like waiting for rain in a drought…not possible.

Calling #IRS today? Expect delays during our busiest period for phone calls. Try IRS.gov instead. #IRScallwait

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.

Got an IRS envelope. Got excited. It was only a letter telling me to expect my tax refund in 3-4 weeks. #great
