For itemizers, IRS has set a tax-filing date of Feb. 14

Taxpayers search through a sea of tax forms offered to the public as tax season kicks off.

Taxpayers who claim itemized deductions will be able to file their federal tax returns starting Feb. 14, the IRS said Thursday.

While the tax-filing season began on Jan. 4, the IRS announced last year that taxpayers who itemize — which includes just about everyone who has a mortgage — would have to wait until at least mid-February to file.

The IRS said the delay was necessary because it needed more time to program its systems to accommodate tax breaks included in the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act of 2010.
