Tax Filing Season for Individuals Starts January 27
The IRS has announced it will begin accepting and processing individual income tax returns for the 2019 tax year on Monday, 1/27/20. According to the agency, that date was chosen to ensure the security and readiness of key tax processing systems and to address the potential impact of recent tax legislation on 2019 tax returns. The IRS expects to receive more than 150 million individual tax returns this year, with the vast majority of them coming before the 4/15/20 deadline. Taxpayers are encouraged to e-file their returns so common errors can be flagged and missing information can be avoided. Taxpayers can get free help preparing and filing taxes through IRS Free File online or free tax help from trained volunteers at community sites around the country.
