Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
The Senate rang in the New Year around 2 a.m. by pushing through a fiscal cliff compromise. The IRS is one of the agencies most affected by the uncertainty. Until a final deal is closed, it looks like the 2013 tax season could be a tumultuous one. There are rumors the chip-maker Intel could roll out a TV set-top box next week, at the Consumer Electronics Show. This would be Intel's second run at this kind of thing -- so why is it so intent on getting its hardware into your living room?
