Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen has sent a message of thanks to tax professionals and their partners for managing to get through a “challenging” tax season.

[IMGCAP(1)]“As the April 15 deadline approaches, I want to thank all the tax professionals and other partners who have helped to make a challenging filing season run as smoothly as we could have hoped,” Koskinen wrote in an email Wednesday. “Every filing season is busy and presents unique issues. This tax season saw hurdles ranging from the tax extender legislation in December to putting in place new provisions of the Affordable Care Act. The work of attorneys, Certified Public Accountants and Enrolled Agents as well as the software industry and payroll community has been extremely helpful—and essential—to running the tax system and helping the nation.”
