Americans Navigating Another Chaotic Tax Season (Podcast)

March 12, 2021, 9:45 AM

We are in the heart of tax filing season in the U.S. and, so far, it appears to be going much better than last year. That, however, is an extraordinarily low bar, given that last year’s season ran up against the outset of a global pandemic.

On this episode of our weekly podcast, Talking Tax, we launch a two-part series looking at how tax season is going and whether any of the problems from last year still linger. Next week, we will be looking at corporate and business filers. But today the focus is on individuals.

Bloomberg Tax’s Allyson Versprille speaks with Aisha Servaty, an attorney and director of Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid’s Low Income Taxpayer Clinic. Servaty says many of the problems from last year’s filing season haven’t been resolved and talks about what state and federal officials could do to fix them.
