The deadline for filing your taxes is April 15, 2013. While this is the normal deadline, there are some important new things you should know for the 2013 tax season.

The 2013 tax season started about a week later this year due to tax law changes enacted by Congress at the beginning of January. Most people can file their individual income tax returns starting January 30, but you might have to wait until the end of February or March if you’re filing certain forms, including:

Form 5695 (Residential Energy Credits – PDF)
Form 4562 (Depreciation and Amortization – PDF)
Form 3800 (General Business Credit – PDF)

The IRS has a complete list of forms it will begin accepting in late February or March.
