LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Monday, May 17, is the deadline for filing federal taxes. The deadline for filing was moved a month due the pandemic.

The Internal Revenue Service says that due to an unusually large backlog of tax returns from 2019 and 2020 are being processed and there will likely be delays in people receiving their refunds. The IRS also said it’s taking longer to process mail documents.
