IRS Announces Tax Filing Season to Begin Feb. 12

January 18, 2021

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently announced that tax filing season for the year 2020 returns will begin on Friday, February 12, 2021.


This later start date for individual filers will allow the IRS time to test and do additional programming for the systems after the December 27 tax law changes that provided the second wave of Economic Impact Payments. The IRS wants to ensure that the programs are running correctly and prevent any delays in issuing refunds to taxpayers.


Although tax filing season does not begin until February 12, you can begin preparations for your 2020 tax returns ahead of time by sending your tax documents to your CPA at Blystone & Bailey today.
