RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – The start of the 2023 tax year, when the IRS will start taking and processing 2022 returns, has been established by the IRS as January 23rd.
The filing date is typically April 15th, but this year it falls on a Saturday and the following Monday is the holiday Emancipation Day.
Therefore, the filing date for this year is on Tuesday, April 18.
Upwards of 168 million individual tax returns are anticipated by the IRS.
The epidemic has recently had a major influence on tax season.
As a result of the Inflation Reduction Act’s approval in August, the IRS has increased more in-person employees and employed more than 5,000 extra telephone assistants to assist taxpayers.
“This filing season is the first to benefit the IRS and our nation’s tax system from multi-year funding in the Inflation Reduction Act,” said Acting IRS Commissioner Doug O’Donnell. “With these new additional resources, taxpayers and tax professionals will see improvements in many areas of the agency this year. We’ve trained thousands of new employees to answer phones and help people. While much work remains after several difficult years, we expect people to experience improvements this tax season. That’s just the start as we work to add new long-term transformation efforts that will make things even smoother in future years. We are very excited to begin to deliver what taxpayers want and our employees know we could do with this funding.”
Taxpayers requesting an extension will have until Monday, Oct. 16, 2023, to file.
