Mark your calendars: The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced it is accepting and processing 2022 tax returns as of January 23, 2023.
IRS Tax Dates for 2023
The January 12 announcement details several key dates and deadlines for Americans in 2023.
Interestingly, the deadline to file taxes isn’t April 15 this year because of the Emancipation Day holiday. Instead, you need to file your return on or before Tuesday, April 18, 2023.
Key Tax Season Dates
- January 13: IRS Free File opens for eligible taxpayers to begin filing returns
- January 23: Tax season begins
- April 18: Due date to file or request an extension
- October 16: Deadline for taxpayers requesting an extension
While the IRS Free File program opened on January 13, 2023, returns were not processed until January 23.
