Shimizu said there was no delay in accepting returns. They actually followed the IRS which set Jan. 27 as the start date for accepting returns.

There are a limited number of blank hard copy 1040 Forms available at DRT said Shimizu. However taxpayers needing forms can download them from the IRS website at >>> https://www.irs.gov/.
