Waiting until the last minute to do your taxes? You might want to think again.

According to Charrisa Rand, a tax specialist, the IRS is dealing with staffing shortages and a backlog of unprocessed tax returns, among other things. 

"Typically, they're only a million tax returns behind, so you want to get in and file as quickly as possible," one specialist said. 

Another specialist added, "Unfortunately, this has been a slow-moving train wreck for decades now. Right now, you're 42% of printers not functioning; you have software technology at the IRS that is rooted back in the 1960s."

Yep, don't say I didn't warn you!
