If you’re looking to procrastinate and file your taxes at the last minute, one tax specialist thinks you should reconsider.  The IRS is dealing with staffing shortages and a backlog of unprocessed tax returns, among other things.  “Typically, they’re only a million tax returns behind, so you want to get in and file as quickly as possible,” one specialist said.  Another specialist added, “Unfortunately, this has been a slow-moving train wreck for decades now. Right now, you’re 42% of printers not functioning; you have software technology at the IRS that is rooted back in the 1960s.”
