Weather Alert

Thunderstorms & Poor Drainage Flooding Possible Today

Isolated instability showers will give way to a chance for thunderstorms this afternoon. While the overall threat for severe weather appears relatively low, one or two storms could produce gusty winds, large hail, and possibly very heavy rain. If heavy rain persists, or if multiple storms move over the same area, then low lying areas, and poor drainage locations, could experience flooding. A second round of late night storms may be possible, but the rain should clear off to the East after midnight.

The Bottom Line: Tax Filing Delay

Updated: Wednesday, March 20 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

NISKAYUNA -- It could've been catastrophic, but really it's just a slowdown.

That's The Bottom Line from a local accountant, about the delay in this year's tax filing season.

The date to start filing was delayed by eight days, because of late changes to the tax laws.

Gerald DeAngelus, with Slocum DeAngelus & Associates PC, was in the CBS 6 newsroom along with our Answers Team Wednesday night, and told Dori Marlin the main effect is a backlog of completed returns in the pipeline.

"To a person that's expecting that kind of a refund," DeAngelus says, "that's a huge delay for them in getting their money."

Dori asked, "What are you telling clients who come in and say they are concerned about it?"

"I explain to them the process, tell them it's not our fault, the government is doing the best they can, because they are."

For people with questions, DeAngelus is referring them to the IRS helpline.
