The Internal Revenue Service says late changes to federal tax laws should mean only a short delay for most taxpayers to file their 2012 returns.

The agency said Tuesday that about 80 percent of all filers should be able to start filing their federal returns Jan. 30. The filing season had been slated to start Jan. 22.

Others will have to wait until late February or March to file because the agency needs time to update and test its systems. Those facing delays include people claiming residential energy credits, depreciation of property or general business credits.
