VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., March 12, 2013 – The critical legislation changes of the first quarter of 2013 have created many obstacles that directly impact the daily lives of many American families. First, the fiscal cliff debate delayed tax return processing by pushing back the release of key tax forms for filing. As a result, those that depend on receiving their income tax refund in January and February felt additional financial pressure. On top of these delays, the sequester cuts created more tax return filing complications and pushed many American families to the limit of their budgets. But relief is in sight.
