Tax season is officially open

Gosh, it seemed like tax season would never get rolling, but here we are, with the IRS ready to accept all tax returns, only a month and a half late. If normally we are given three and a half months to prepare our returns, and the IRS has delayed us for a month and a half, wouldn't it seem reasonable to move the filing date accordingly and make 2010 individual tax returns due at the end of May instead of the traditional (now altered to 4/18) tax day?

That of course is wishful thinking, and maybe not even that. I'm not sure I want tax season lingering around when I'm trying to watch the Indianapolis 500. Tax preparers are probably enjoying a grand, albeit short-lived, feeling of mid-tax-season clearing the decks as everyone gets to file the boatloads of tax returns already prepared, just waiting for the e-file switch to be flipped.
