Tax Filing Season Begins January 23

 

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced that tax season will begin Monday, January 23, 2017. The filing deadline to submit 2016 tax returns is Tuesday, April 18, 2017.


Tax Season Begins January 23
The IRS will begin accepting electronic tax returns on January 23, 2017. Many software companies and tax professionals will be accepting tax returns before January 23 and then will submit the returns when IRS systems open. The IRS will begin processing paper tax returns at the same time. According to the IRS, there is no advantage to filing tax returns on paper in early January instead of waiting for the IRS to begin accepting e-filed returns.

April 18 Filing Deadline 
The filing deadline to submit 2016 tax returns is Tuesday, April 18, 2017, rather than the traditional April 15date, as a result of a weekend and a District of Columbia holiday.
